Making a Difference Scholarship

The Portage Health Foundation (PHF) Making a Difference Scholarship creates opportunities for students who are residents of Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, or Ontonagon counties to enter health science and engineering professions.

Award Value: Up to four students will receive an $8,000 annual award. The awards are renewable for up to four years (eight semesters) of study. Students who were previously awarded the Presidential Scholars Award or Leading Scholar Award and who are selected for a Making a Difference Scholarship will receive the award with the highest value—students can not receive both awards. PHF Scholars will be priority applicants for a paid PHF Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) through the Pavlis Honors College.
