IRHA Rural Dental & Social Work/Behavioral Scholarships
November 18, 2023
- Scholarship Description
First organized in 1989, the Illinois Rural Health Association (IRHA) is a collaborative association comprised of hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics, public health departments, individual clinicians, educational institutions, students and elected officials, whose mission is to strengthen health systems for rural residents and communities through advocacy, education, networking and leadership. The IRHA offers financial aid to prospective students.
Because of the great shortage of dental providers and mental health professionals in rural areas, the IL Rural Health Association is awarding a limited number of scholarships to students currently enrolled in a Dental or Graduate Level Social Work/Behavioral Health program. Recipients must have been raised in a rural setting or are living in one as an adult and intend to provide care to rural residents.
