Healthcare Scholarship: Tylenol Future Care Scholarship

Scholarship Overview

The Tylenol Future Care Scholarship, sponsored by the makers of Tylenol, is a well-established merit scholarship fund offering over $250,000 in awards annually. The scholarship has been in existence for over 20 years and has awarded almost $10 million in scholarship monies. Over those 20+ years, recipients of this scholarship have gone on to have an undeniable affect on the healthcare industry and their individual fields of study.

There are typically 40 undergraduate or graduate winners pursuing careers in the healthcare industry, 10 scholarships worth $10,000 and 30 scholarships worth $5,000. In addition to these Future Care Scholarships Tylenol also awards 150 smaller scholarships of $1,000 each to students who exhibit excellence in community involvement in their local communities. The awards are based on academic excellence, community involvement, and leadership qualities.

Beginning with the 2014 awards, McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNeil-PPC, Inc., the makers of Tylenol, and Rite Aid have partnered to offer the opportunity at an additional $500 gift card to offset the costs of textbooks for the coming semester.
