Appalachian Health Career Scholarships
The Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky (CEDIK) at the University of Kentucky is administering scholarships where funding has been provided by the New York Community Trust, to Appalachian students seeking education in health or a health‐related field. Because of the shortage of health care providers in the Appalachian region, along with the expected retirement of many physicians and an aging population that demands more health care, the need to educate and then retain young health care professionals is a real priority. Scholarships are allocated for full‐time students with a maximum award of $2,500 per semester. Part‐time students are eligible to apply for partial scholarships.
Students must be from an ARC defined Appalachian county to be eligible.
The 2013-2014 academic year scholarship application process has offically closed.
Please, no calls or emails on the status of your application. All applicants will be notified by mail once scholarships are awarded.
