Health Sciences

Harding University has a rich history in the Health Sciences. The goal of each of the divisions is to prepare students to be Christian servants in their respective field. To that end, the health science programs are designed to enrich both the heart and the mind. Students are encouraged to participate in medical mission trips and to volunteer at local health clinics. Our students undergo a rigorous academic program and have been accepted to some of the top medical programs in the United States. We invite you to join us as you make the next step in your educational journey

The Coons-Farrar Scholarship Fund was established to honor the memory of Catherine Farrar Williams. The purpose of the Fund is to help prepare exceptional Christian young people for careers in health and medical fields. 

Full time junior and senior students (those having accumulated 60 hours of college credit, including CLEP) who plan careers in medical, biomedical or health related fields may apply. This includes students who are now majoring in the natural sciences, computer science, mathematics, dietetics, etc., and who plan a career in the medical, biomedical, or other health related areas (e.g., medicine, nursing, statistics, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, medical technology, medical instrumentation, computer applications to health care, genetics, biophysics, etc.). In choosing among the various applicants, the committee will consider scholarship, demonstrated capability in the chosen field, and potential for future service to the biomedical or allied health professions and to the Lord's work. Special consideration will be given to those students who plan to work in a mission field (foreign or domestic) or in a medically underserved area.

In the early part of the spring semester, interested students should watch for an announcement giving the specific instructions and deadline dates for the application procedure. Applications for the scholarships are to be submitted to Dr. Lambert Murray, Coons-Farrar Scholarship Coordinator. The applications will be evaluated by the Health Science Committee and recommendations will be made by that committee to the Coons-Farrar Committee. The final scholarship awards decisions will be made by the Coons-Farrar Committee.

Several other premedical scholarships are awarded to upper classmen each year including the Duane Priest Scholarship, the Rodney and Joan Carlton Scholarship, the Blachley Scholarship, and the Stanley Schwartz Scholarship.
