We are pleased to offer an opportunity for community members and students to apply for scholarships to attend the WV Rural Health Conference. WVRHA intends to provide up to two scholarships for community members and up to 10 student scholarships which include: conference registration and a $500.00 travel stipend.  The travel stipend will be provided as a check to the scholarship recipient on Friday, November 15 at the conclusion of the final conference session.

Applicants must apply using the form below and should clearly articulate their interest and/or experience in rural health and attest that they would otherwise be unable to attend the conference without the scholarship support. Scholarship recipients must agree to attend all three conference days.
