New York Community Trust Appalachian Health Fellows

Grants and Contracts Details


New York Community Trust Appalachian Health Fellowship Abstract Alison Davis The Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky (CEDIK) at the University of Kentucky proposes to continue administering 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 provide (7) $20,000 scholarships in two years.
