Seeking funding for your public health project? The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice has stipends to support student projects during the 2021–22 academic year.

Twenty students will be awarded up to $3,500 each for public health projects conducted in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Oregon. Funds will be distributed directly to students and are intended to help them defray living expenses during their hands-on learning experience.

Stipends are available for undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students enrolled in public health, psychology, sociology, and social work degree programs. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible.

Proposals will be evaluated based on public health practice focus, attention to underserved areas and populations, and feasibility. Students are encouraged to submit projects that address opioid misuse and improving mental and behavioral health. However, projects that focus on other health areas will still receive full consideration for funding.

There are limited stipends available, so students are encouraged to apply early. Learn more about the application process and read about funded projects from past years. Contact Barb Rose for more information.

The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice at the University of Washington School of Public Health is one of ten regional Public Health Training Centers funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration.
