The IDEA Professional Development Award funds student opportunities that contribute to their inclusion, diversity, equity, and antiracism (IDEA) knowledge and training. IDEA Professional Development awards help students develop IDEA-oriented competencies that will enhance their future work as public health leaders, including a deeper commitment to health equity and social justice, and social responsibility. Undergraduate, graduate and PhD students enrolled at DSPH are encouraged to apply for awards up to $1000, which may be spent on professional development opportunities or resources that fulfill the aims of DSPH’s Antiracism Action Plan. Award funding may include but is not limited to: travel for conference/workshop/training, hotel, registration and research expenses. Awards will be considered on a rolling basis until available funding is exhausted. Students are permitted to receive this award once per academic year.
Funding requests must be submitted at least three weeks in advance through the funding request form.
