Student Practicum Funding Opportunities

The Ohio State Center for Public Health Practice, as part of the Human Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Region-V Public Health Training Center (PHTC) program, is offering a limited amount of funding to students to support unpaid learning experiences. This funding is available for students who have already found and secured a practicum experience. 3 stipends of $3,500 are available on a first come, first served basis. Applications are due March, 31st 2019.  (All stipends for 2019 have been allocated, check back again in 2020 for additional funds)

Students may be pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s degree, or Ph.D.in the College of Public Health or a graduate-level degree in the College of Social Work.  The hours required of the student and the timing of the year for the work to be completed is flexible, but the project must meet your college’s requirements for practicum credit.  In order to be eligible, you must have a confirmed practicum experience that works with either a Medically Underserved Area/Population or in a Health Professional Shortage Area.
