Sponsored by The Kresge Foundation, the Population Health Scholarship Program is designed to bring emerging community health leaders to Washington, DC for a policy boot camp, where they will:
- Attend and participate in the 2015 National Health Policy Conference
- Meet with policymakers and community health stakeholders
- Network with key advisors from AcademyHealth’s Translation and Dissemination Institute and the Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy.
Ten scholars will receive a travel stipend and complimentary registration for the NHPC and participate in activities based on their health policy interests.
Applicants who identify with one of the following underrepresented racial/ethnic minority groups are encouraged to apply: Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaskan Native.
