Please ensure the widest distribution possible to our eligible Graduate Student population. We always appreciate the selection of the scholarship winners to be as competitive as possible. This way we can reward the most deserving student. Each applicant must submit the packet to the South Texas Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than by NOVEMBER 15 of the year applying.
The goal of the Scholarship Committee is to review all applications and make scholarship selections no later than holiday semester break in December so that the funds can be distributed in time to help the awardees pay for the 2nd Semester tuition or to support their stated purpose. Each awardee will also be recognized at Healthcare Landscape, a South Texas Joint Healthcare Conference, a collaborative face-to-face event with Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and the Greater San Antonio Healthcare Foundation. Healthcare Landscape is normally held during January/February.
STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The South Texas Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (STC-ACHE) provides an opportunity for student financial assistance. This year, the STC-ACHE will provide up to four $1000 awards. The awards provide either academic scholarships or professional society meeting sponsorships associated with student academic requirements.
Academic Scholarship: The purpose of this academic scholarship is to recognize an outstanding student and provide him/her with financial assistance that can be used toward tuition, books, and other expenses associated with graduate healthcare administration education.
Professional Society Meeting Sponsorship: The purpose of this professional society meeting sponsorship is to recognize an outstanding student and provide him/her with financial assistance that can be used toward registration, travel, and lodging associated with attending an ACHE educational meeting (e.g. ACHE Congress) to enhance his/her academic student education while in either the didactic studies or residency portion of his/her education.
Eligibility: The applicant must be a member of the STC-ACHE and ACHE, reside in the STC-ACHE region while in the didactic (courses) phase, and be enrolled in a master’s or a doctoral degree program with a primary focus or a concentration in healthcare administration or leadership (e.g. MHA, MBA, MPH, Ph.D. in healthcare leadership). Student-residents who were members of STC-ACHE and ACHE during the didactic phase of their studies are also eligible, regardless of the location of their residency.
