Two New Scholarships Announced

John Edwin Yarbrough Scholarship

UofM Lambuth establishes John Yarbrough Scholarship for students in health science.

"We are thrilled to learn of this new scholarship to support students studying in the areas of health sciences/health services," said Dr. Rick Bloomer, dean of the School of Health Studies. "With a rapidly growing undergraduate program in Health Sciences, as well as plans to add graduate programs in health-specific disciplines, this scholarship is timely and most welcome."
