The Population Health Scholarship provides 10 community health leaders with an exclusive opportunity to learn about national health policy. Sponsored by The Kresge Foundation, the Population Health Scholarship Program is designed to bring emerging community health leaders to Washington, D.C. 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; and
  • 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.
