-How much time will this program require of me?
We estimate that the AHEC Scholars program will require approximately 2.5 hours per week of your time. The two weeks that include an in-person meeting will require a few more hours, but 2.5 will be a consistent allotment for the rest of the semester.
-Are we given guidelines as to how we spend the stipend?
No. At the end of each year, the $250 is yours to spend as you see fit.
-How much travelling will I need to do for this program?
The program will require the two in-person meetings, but aside from that much of the program will be completed via electronic sources. In addition, there will be a multitude of other opportunities for the students to travel throughout the region to learn. This will include events such as educational conferences, simulation experiences, service learning opportunities, etc.
-Can undergraduate AND graduate students apply?
Yes! This program is open to ANY student entering at least a two-year allied health program. Undergraduate and graduate students are all encouraged to apply.
