SCPHA Now Accepting Scholarship Application

January 13, 2020 12:10 PM | Rich P. Timmons


It is my pleasure to announce the South Carolina Public Health Association (SCPHA) will offer two (2) scholarships, each in the amount of $500, to eligible candidates in the field of Public Health.  The continued awareness of the role of public health depends upon the enthusiasm and commitment of existing and future public health professionals. Scholarships support the SCPHA mission for “scientific and professional development of the membership.”  The two (2) scholarships will be presented at our SCPHA Annual Conference on April 21, 2020.

We appreciate your previous support of SCPHA and request your assistance, which is crucial to the success of SCPHA and our scholarship program, in publicizing these scholarships and our Association in the following ways:

1.    Please circulate and post the attached copies of the two (2) scholarship applications to potential applicants, colleagues, and friends. The applications are also available on the SCPHA website (  The deadline for submission Friday, March 27, 2020.
