Schools and other community organizations in southwest Indiana that promote health careers for youth (grades 6-12), offer clinical experiences for health professions students, or provide continuing education for health professionals may be eligible to receive a mini-grant from the Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center (SWI-AHEC).
SWI-AHEC is seeking applications for projects in Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick counties now through September 25.
“We are interested in projects across the healthcare workforce pipeline, from youth to current healthcare professionals. Our focus is on the diversity, distribution and quality of the healthcare workforce throughout southwest Indiana,” said Jane Friona, SWI-AHEC executive director. “Historically, awards have ranged between $1,000 and $4,000. The number of mini-grants awarded will be dependent on the number of proposals we receive.”
