Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences awards need-based grants to students on an annual basis. Selection criteria for these awards are based on a formula that evaluates student-documented financial need and are determined by the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences scholarship committee. The awards are made possible by generous benefactor contributions, and therefore the award amounts vary annually.

In the 2018-2019 academic year, enrolled physical therapy students were awarded need-based grants exceeding $637,000. The average award was $9,600. Additional grants are awarded on a competitive basis to students enrolled in the third year of the program by the Mayo Clinic Therapy Alumni Association.
