The application cycle for the 2013 Paul Ambrose Scholars Program is now open! The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program exposes health professions students to influential public health professionals and prepares them to be leaders in addressing population health challenges at the national and community level. Scholarships are awarded to eligible students to attend a four-day symposium in Washington, DC and conduct a community-based health education project at their institution.
The symposium presents introductory information for clinical students without prior advanced public health training. Since 2002 more than 460 students from over 160 academic institutions have become Paul Ambrose Scholars. Last year’s application cycle was the most competitive in the program’s history and APTR will continue to select the best and the brightest for the 2013 class!
