ANTHC offers $5,000 scholarships for 10 Alaska Native and American Indian students

To achieve the vision that Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world, the Alaska Tribal Health System must also be healthy and robust. As an integral part of ANTHCs long-term strategy to increase the number of Alaska Native and American Indian people working in health care fields, ANTHC’s Board of Directors established a fund that offers annual education scholarships to Alaska Native and American Indian people, including our staff. Ten scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded this year.

This year’s scholarships will be awarded for the fall term of the 2014-2015 academic year and can be used for tuition, books and fees for professional certificate programs or higher education degrees. The scholarship applications are due Friday, June 20. This scholarship award is open to Alaska Native or American Indian people who meet the following eligibility requirements: are permanent Alaska residents; are interested in working in the health care field; and are currently enrolled in a formal education or training program.

To request an application or receive more information about the ANTHC scholarships, please contact Claudia Tiepelman, ANTHC’s Education, Development and Training Associate Trainer, at (907) 729-1301 or learning.
