CEDIK Scholarship Program for Appalachian Health Care Career Students

Grants and Contracts Details


The Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky (CEDIK) at the University of Kentucky proposes to a dminister scholarships, with funding provided by the New York Community Trust, to Appalachian residents seeking education in health or a health-related field. The shortage of health care providers in the Appalachian region, along with the expected retirement of many physicians, and of course an aging population that demands more health care, the need to educate and then retain young health care professionals is a real priority. CEDIK will work with 4-year institutions, junior colleges, and community and technical schools to publicize the scholarships. We foresee being able to award 20 scholarships at $5,000 each over a 2 year period.
