FUNDING - Student Leaders Field Placement & Leadership Program Opportunity!
Student Leaders in Public Health
We are excited to share with you the Student Leaders in Public Health program!
Student Leaders in Public Health is a field placement and leadership program funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) through the Public Health Training Centers Program.
In this new round of funding, HRSA has increased the stipend amount to $3,500, increased the number of stipends to 27 for the Rocky Mountain Region, and extended the reach to other public health-related graduate and undergraduate programs (e.g., psychology, sociology, social work). We see this change as a great opportunity to increase the impact and visibility of the program.
