$5,000

May 31, 2020

Awards Available: 4

  • Scholarship Description
  • The Katrina Kehlet Graduate Award is offered in memory of Katrina Kehlet, a longtime friend to NJHIMSS. She served as a senior leader for one of America’s leading technology companies and passed away in the Fall of 2012. To recognize her 20+ year career, her support for our chapter and her friendship, the NJ Chapter of HIMSS established the Katrina Kehlet Graduate Award. This $5,000 Award is offered to one individual whose essay embodies the passion, values and innovative use of technology that Katrina displayed in her career. Through this action we hope to keep her memory, passion, and dedication in the forefront of our chapter activity and academic support.

    The chapter will award a second Graduate Award to another deserving individual pursuing a Graduate degree. This award will be for $4,000.

    The Veterans Award is offered to students pursuing an Associate, Baccalaureate or Graduate degree for $4,000.

    The Undergraduate Award is offered to students pursuing a Baccalaureate degree for $2,500.

    Applicants for the NJHIMSS scholarships must be enrolled in an accredited Undergraduate, Graduate, or Doctoral program related to Healthcare Information Management, Healthcare Information Technology or Clinical Informatics. The specific degree program is not a critical factor, although it is expected that programs similar to those in healthcare informatics, healthcare computer science and information systems, healthcare policy and quantitative programs in business administration and hospital administration will predominate.
    Applicants must be attending a school in New Jersey OR be New Jersey resident, the recipient is requested to become a student member of the NJHIMSS Chapter, have at least a B average or equivalent at the time of the application, and veterans applying must have received an honorable or general discharge to be considered (if asked, the candidate would be able to provide the official DD-214)

    *Previous Scholarship winners are ineligible.

    All applicants will be required to submit a copy of their academic transcripts and a 500-word essay on how they will impact the arena of Healthcare Informatics and/or Healthcare Technology as part of the application process.
