The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is a national resource, partner and advocate for state public health leaders and others working to improve the health of women, children, youth and families, including those with special health care needs.

Scholarship funds are designed to assist graduate students in furthering their education as promising maternal and child health (MCH) professionals while sponsoring their attendance at the AMCHP Annual Conference to hone their leadership skills and connect them with existing leaders within MCH.

  • Provide a leadership development opportunity for emerging MCH leaders
  • Open opportunities to network with MCH professionals and families nationally
  • Establish a forum to learn about emerging and national MCH issues related to women, children, youth and families, including those with special health care needs
  • Support the educational development of graduate students by providing funds for education-related expenses
  • Develop advocates for Title V and MCH programs.

The scholarship will provide up to $1,500 for educational expenses and up to $1,000, to attend the AMCHP Annual Conference.  Scholars selected in fall 2013 would receive funds to support the current year of study and attendance at the 2014 conference, to be held January 25-28, 2014 in Washington, DC.
