Ridge Scholarship in Health or Healthcare and Humanities Application


The Institute of Health and Humanities announces $1,000 scholarships for research and creative works on topics at the intersection of health and/or healthcare and the Humanities.  Qualified students are invited to apply.

Applications related to health equity, end-of-life care, climate change and health, suicide and community responses to suicide are particularly encouraged.  There is a general expectation that the research or creative work will be completed or advanced enough in time for the student to present at the Ridge Symposium in April, 2018, although applicants with meritorious projects with a slightly later completion date will be considered for presentation in conjunction with later events.

Applications will be accepted starting immediately and until the awards are exhausted. Early application is encouraged.

Application Deadline: November 20, 2017
