Scholarship Information

The 2024 Scholarship Applications are due by end of day on 7/21/24.

Applications will be reviewed the week of July 22nd by a diverse committee.

If you have any questions about the PHiR Scholarship Program, please email [email protected].

At CPHA, building meaningful partnerships to advance health and health equity is a major priority. When it comes to ensuring a resilient public health workforce for years to come, there is no more important partnership than the one we forge with public health students and early career professionals. That’s how the Public Health in the Rockies (PHiR) Conference Scholarship Program began. 

The Colorado School of Public Health has a separate scholarship for their students. Please email Katie Brumfield at [email protected] for more information and to apply.

Scholarship Details

All scholarship recipients will receive complimentary registration to the PHiR conference and can choose to attend the full event or just one day. We will also reimburse up to $100 of travel expenses through receipts turned in after the conference. This reimbursement can be applied toward lodging or travel costs (mileage or rental car fees). You will be required to handle your own travel logistics including lodging reservations. Applicants will receive notification of their status by July 26th, 2024.

Eligibility Priority Criteria

The scholarship program enables public health students and early career professionals to attend the annual PHiR conference, the region’s largest gathering of public health professionals. Priority will be given for the 2024 Scholarship to attendees who meet one or more of the following criteria:

● Be employed in a Public Health, Community related or be in a position that promotes overall health including physical, mental health and spiritual health.
● Be enrolled as an undergrad, graduate or doctorate student in a Public Health program
● Be accepted as a speaker at the Public Health in the Rockies
● Be an active member of the Colorado Public Health Association

CPHA has defined health equity to be the active assurance that everyone is afforded the opportunities essential to attaining their highest level of health. In alignment with CPHA’s commitment to health equity and diversifying the public health workforce, we will consider demographic differences to support individuals’ ability to attend Public Health in the Rockies 2024. Specifically, we will prioritize our scholarship funds to support public health students and professionals who are underrepresented in health sciences fields and careers.  This includes, and is not limited to racial, ethnic, gender, faith group identity, language, national origin and ability.

If you meet the eligibility criteria above, please consider applying for the scholarship. You will be asked to answer questions related to your current career status and scholarship needs.

Reminder: The Colorado School of Public Health has a separate scholarship for their students. Please email Katie Brumfield at [email protected] for more information and to apply.
