Extended Application date for AAHD Scholarship Fund

We have extended the deadline for applications for the AAHD scholarship fund to Nov. 15, 2009. This is the scholarship program’s inaugural year, and AAHD is excited about its launch. We expect the scholarship fund to grow over the next few years.

The scholarships will help undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities pursue higher education in the field of public health, health promotion, disability studies or disability research. For now, scholarships will be limited to less than $1,000. To make a tax-deductible contribution to the scholarship fund, please contact Roberta Carlin, Executive Director, at rcarlin@aahd.us or call 301-545-6140, ext. 206.
