Giving Opportunities

Opportunities for Support

For more than 40 years, the Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions has been dedicated to the provision of the highest quality basic medical sciences and health professional education in order to meet healthcare needs and to contribute to new knowledge through research. Gifts from alumni, employees and friends of the University of South Alabama are vital to the success of the Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions and our students. All contributions, no matter the size, have a dynamic impact on our promising future healthcare professionals and the quality of care in our community, the region and nationwide.   

Scholarships
The Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions continues to develop innovative academic programs that connect classroom learning with real-world issues, strives to encourage students to maximize their potential and fosters students’ passion to make a difference. While our mission and philosophy are attractive, the rising cost of tuition has created another area of need that College must address in order to better support current students and recruit future students.

Scholarships gifts are not only an investment in individual students, but also in the patients that each of our graduates will touch throughout their careers. A variety of options are available to donors who want to establish a scholarship for students. For example, a one-time gift can be donated or an endowment can be established to ensure perpetuity of the gift. A minimum gift of $10,000 will establish a named endowed scholarship fund. Such a gift can be made through payments extended over a period of time.

Professorships and Endowed Chairs
Professorships and endowed chair support is another way in which donors can assist the College. Such endowments support and enhance the ability of the College to recruit renowned faculty to teach, participate in scholarship, and provide service to the university, the profession, and the community. However, patients, students and local citizens are not the sole beneficiaries. Named professorships and chairs are both an honor to the named holder of the appointment and are also an enduring tribute to the donor.
