2020 Health Equity Conference Scholarship Application

2020 Rural Health Equity Conference 
May 19, 2020
San Diego, CA. 

The National Rural Health Association has scholarship funds available for students and community members with a critical need for financial support with conference expenses.  Scholarships will be awarded on to people who meet the eligibility criteria specified on the enclosed application form, and who are unable to attend the 2020 Health Equity Conference without such support. 

In an effort to foster collaboration within communities, scholarships will be given to students and community members working in health care. The scholarships will help expose these recipients to health issues and encourage their participation in resolving these issues through positive solutions.

The scholarship is to help offset the cost of the conference registration fee, hotel accommodations and travel expenses.  The total individual scholarship award will be $1,000.

Scholars selected are expected to provide their own funds to pay for their remaining expenses, including registration.  Scholarship recipients will be notified of their award upon receipt and review of the application. Scholars will receive their award once they arrive at the conference.

Applicants meeting the eligibility criteria will be awarded scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds have been committed. 

Qualifications:

Because scholarship funds are very limited, financial assistance can be provided only to students and community members with a critical need for this support. To qualify for a conference scholarship, an applicant must (1) work or reside in a rural or frontier area; (2) explain why he/she cannot attend the conference without financial assistance (see below); (3) provide their own funds to pay for their additional expenses to participate in the event.

In the space below, briefly explain the reason(s) why you cannot attend the conference without financial assistance.
