Physician Assistant Program
HUPA Veteran's Endowed Scholarship
The scholarship is awarded to a student entering their clinical year (second year) of the HUPA program. Recipients must show scholarship, leadership, diligence, capability and financial need. While any applicant will be considered, preference will be given to veterans of the armed services and to those with immediate family members who are veterans or who are currently serving.
HUPA Spring Break Mission Trip
Each year during spring break, Harding University PA students are invited to participate in a mission trip that is organized through Health Talents International (HTI), a Christian faith-based organization affiliated with the Churches of Christ. This trip is completely voluntary and at the students' expense. During this week-long trip, the students work with licensed health care providers to provide primary health care to the descendants of the Mayan civilization in Guatemala. We work alongside HTI health care providers who work in this capacity year-round, so there is follow-up care after we leave. All participants are expected to abide by the HTI policies (available at healthtalents.org) as well as the policies of the Harding PA program and Harding University while participating in the mission trip.
