Funding Sources

MHA Professional Development Funds

Each academic year, MPH and MHA students have an opportunity to apply for $500 in assistance to help offset the cost of attending a professional conference and/or events. Funds may apply to virtual conferences and/or events. In addition, funds may also be used towards memberships in professional organization, such as the American Public Health Association or the American College of Healthcare Executives. Students may apply for this award in each year they are enrolled. The $500 can be used toward conference registration, housing (ex: hotels), travel (ex: car, plane, train) and professional organization membership fees. If you still have any amount of the $500 left after all of these items are accounted for, you can use the rest toward another conference/event at a later date within the same academic year. After submitting an application, please notify Dr. Rice ( that you have submitted an application.
