The Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers has announced the availability of its Hunt Scholarship. This $2,000 cash scholarship is awarded to a student at the undergraduate level who displays a genuine interest in community and public health through either academic study or volunteer service.
Established in 1992, the Hunt Scholarship was named in honor of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers’ long-standing Chief Executive Officer, James W. Hunt, Jr., who first joined the health center movement in 1972 through volunteer participation on a community health center board and who rose to become, and still is, the President and CEO of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers. As both a state and national leader on community-based health care issues, Hunt promotes the value of health centers in improving access to quality health care while reducing costs across the health system.
To apply, candidates must submit an application along with a short essay – no longer than two typed pages – expressing their interest in community health or public service. Letters of support and documentation demonstrating financial need are welcome but are strictly optional. Applications and essays will be accepted by email and mail as long as they are postmarked by Monday, April 1, 2019. The recipient must be available to receive the award at the Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 during the League’s Annual Conference at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, MA.
