About the Community Health Equity and Dissemination Scholarship

USC Center For Health Equity in the Americas (CenHealth) Community Health Equity and Dissemination Scholarships (previously known as the “CenHealth Travel Award”) are available to current USC Keck School of Medicine Students for travel and/or registration cost to attend: 1) a conference where students will be presenting research/practice on a topic related to Health Equity in the Americas, or 2) a practicum and/or conducting a research project related to Health equity in the Americas.

The goal of CenHealth is to encourage more students to pursue health equity research and practice in the Americas, and promote the dissemination of findings. To receive this award, it is expected that students will have either an accepted presentation/poster at a conference or will be working on a project related to health equity.
