- Scholarship Description
Each year, the New Jersey Chapter of the Health Information and Management Systems Society offers three scholarship awards for students in a Healthcare Information Management, Healthcare Information Technology or a Clinical Informatics track. 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.
To be eligible, applicants must: be attending a school in New Jersey or be New Jersey resident; consider becoming a student member of the NJHIMSS Chapter; and, have at least a B average or equivalent. 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).
