American Association on Health and (AAHD) Disability Scholarships Program 2010-2011.

The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) contributes to national, state, and local efforts to promote health and wellness in people with disabilities and identify effective intervention strategies that reduce health disparities between people with disabilities and the general population. AAHD accomplishes its mission through research, education and advocacy at the national, state and community level.

In 2009, AAHD created the AAHD Disability Scholarships Program, which will support students with disabilities who are pursuing higher education. Preference will be given to students who plan to pursue undergraduate/graduate studies in the field of public health, health promotion, disability studies, to include disability policy and disability research. Royalties from the DHJ will fund the first year of the AAHD Scholarship Fund.

Scholarships are limited to under $1,000, and the scholarship Committee will determine how many scholarships will be awarded each year and the amount of each scholarship. The AAHD board and staff are excited to be able to launch this program and support the efforts and dedication of students who have chosen to pursue higher education in the field of disability.

The Disability Scholarships Application must be submitted no later than November 15, 2010 - More information and applications - www.aahd.us
