St. Catherine University is pleased to announce $1.5 million in new scholarship funding for students pursuing public health careers as Community Health Workers. Please pass this message on to anyone in your community who may be interested in careers in community and public health.
This federal grant will support students pursuing the Community Health Worker certificate, or the bachelor's in Public Health degree with a Community Health Worker concentration. Courses are offered online through St. Kate's College for Adults.
A Community Health Worker (CHW) is a frontline public health worker who serves as an intermediary between health and social services and clients, working to increase access to health services and improve the quality and cultural competency of healthcare delivery. Students in the program gain skills in health communication, cultural competency, and health education, and get real-world experience with a community partner.
Scholarships will be awarded to a limited number of students to cover the full tuition cost of the certificate program, or 24 credits of the public health bachelor's program. Scholarships will be awarded twice annually over the next three years.
Anyone interested is invited to:
