AHC 1Health Support for Student Rural Rotations

1Health Interprofessional Rural Rotation Scholarship Process 

Living and working in a rural community is a unique experience that provides both personal and professional rewards. The Academic Health Center Office of Education, in collaboration with 1Health, is able to offer you a scholarship for completing one rural rotation that meets the specified guidelines and eligibility requirements. This funding is intended to help offset food, housing and travel expenses related to the rural rotation experience. 


If you are a University of Minnesota health professions student and you complete a rural rotation/training experience between the dates of September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019, you may be eligible to receive a $300 1Health interprofessional rural rotation scholarship. Please review the scholarship eligibility requirements and application process below:
