September 11, 2018

The Northwest Public Health Training Center at NWCPHP is now accepting applications to support health professions students completing field placements and collaborative projects in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Oregon. A total of 20 proposals will be funded up to $3,500 each during the 2018–19 school year.

Practice-based projects help students gain practical experience in a public health or other community-based organization and the chance to address critical health issues in the field. Funds will be awarded directly to students and are intended to help them defray living expenses during their hands-on training experience.

Stipends are available for undergraduate juniors and seniors, graduate students, and doctoral students enrolled public health, psychology, sociology, and social work degree programs. Undergraduate applicants must include a letter of support from a faculty member.

Students may apply for funding at any time during the fall or winter quarter of the 2018–19 school year. Proposals will be evaluated based on public health practice focus, attention to underserved areas and populations, and feasibility. Students are strongly encouraged to submit projects that address opioid misuse and improving mental and behavioral health.
