League’s Public Health 2019 Grant Program
The League for Innovation in the Community College (League), in collaboration with the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), aims to create a Community College Culture of Health. To launch this effort, the League is encouraging community college students to hold events during National Public Health Week 2019 (April 1-7) or World Health Day (April 7, 2019) which broadly focus on “Public Health: What It Is and How To Be Part of It.”
The League will provide up to 75 small grants to community college groups to support these activities. ASPPH, which represents schools and programs of public health, and the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), which represents health education specialists, are working with the League to increase awareness of public health and how to be part of it. The American Public Health Association (APHA) is the lead organization for National Public Health Week, and the United Nations World Health Organization sponsors World Health Day.
The application process is open to the following:
- Community college student organizations* focused on health, education, or related fields.
- Community college programs or courses in public health, nursing, allied health, or other healthcare or health-related fields.
- Other community college student organizations*, programs, or courses seeking to increase awareness of public health issues, programs, courses, and career options in their areas of focus or study.
*local organizations or local chapters of state or national organizations
Projects should focus on increasing student awareness of public health, courses and programs in public health, and career opportunities in public health.
