Student Applied Practice Experience Stipends

Student Applied Practice Experience 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 Applied Practice Experience. Three stipends of up to $3500 are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are intended for students who have already found and secured a Applied Practice Experience opportunity.

Students may be pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree 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.
