2018 Scholarship Information

Each year the PHiR planning affiliates (CPHA and PHNAC) endeavor to support students and early career professionals to attend the Public Health in the Rockies Conference.

The Conference will be in Copper Colorado this year from August 29-31 and provides an exceptional opportunity for education, networking, and skill development.

Partial and full scholarships (lodging + registration) will be offered based on demonstrated need and interest of the applicant. Scholarship recipients will be notified by June 25. Scholarship recipients who have already paid for lodging and registration will be reimbursed for the amount of their scholarship.  Thank you for your interest in the Public Health in the Rockies conference and we look forward to reviewing your application as part of the up and coming generation of public health professionals!
