Students: Apply now for APHA’s Get Ready Scholarship

APHA is pleased to announce its second annual Get Ready Scholarship. The scholarship is part of APHA’s Get Ready campaign which helps Americans prepare themselves, their families and their communities for all hazards and disasters, including pandemic flu, infectious disease, natural disasters and other emergencies.

The $500 Get Ready Scholarship is designed to encourage students to focus on the importance of emergency preparedness. The scholarship is open to U.S. high school seniors as well as full-time college undergraduate and graduate students, and six winners will be chosen. Scholarship winners, who will also be awarded a one-year APHA membership, will be chosen through an essay contest on emergency preparedness. (Need some essay inspiration? Read the winning submissions from last year’s scholarship round.)

The Get Ready Scholarship will open for applications on Feb. 8 and submissions will be received until April 2, or until contest entry limits are reached. Read the full rules online and start thinking about your essay now!
