Hometown Scholars students receive scholarships

June 30, 2016
Posted In: ASDOH, Community Health Centers, MOSDOH, SOMA, Student Headlines

In recognition of National Association of Community Health Centers’ (NACHC) 50th anniversary in 2015, ATSU reserved $50,000 for Hometown Scholars scholarships. The Hometown Scholars program, initiated in response to requests from Community Health Centers (CHC), helps ATSU meet the needs of CHCs by attracting and training dedicated, motivated, and qualified community-minded individuals who aspire to become healthcare providers. Applicants who have been endorsed by a CHC leader and matriculate into ATSU are eligible for the scholarships.

In 2016, three Hometown Scholar students were each awarded $2,500:

“ATSU is proud to honor NACHC by investing in a scholarship fund for Hometown Scholars – students whose applications were endorsed by Health Centers based upon their compassion and commitment to the underserved,” says Gary Cloud, PhD, vice president of university partnerships.

“Growing our own healers is a key strategy for building healthy communities, and Hometown Scholars engages CHCs  in identifying, mentoring and endorsing tomorrow’s cadre of healers,” said Ron Yee, MD, MBA, FAAFP, chief medical officer, NACHC. NACHC is delighted that ATSU has chosen to invest in this key scholarship fund.”
