Kathy Mac Nurse Scholar Travel Funding Opportunity

The Call for Applications for the 2024 awards cycle has CLOSED.
Submit an application by February 7, 2024.

The American College Health Foundation, through the Kathy Mac Scholar Fund, will offer funding to partially offset meeting registration, hotel and travel expenses for one nurse or nurse practitioner, who has never been to an ACHA meeting, to attend the ACHA Annual Meeting. 

Funding Decisions will be made by the ACHF Board of Directors.

Funding will be open to any nurse applicant who is an ACHA Individual or Institutional RMI member and demonstrates a strong interest in improving the well-being of the students, faculty, and staff that they serve. Applicants will be responsible for any remaining travel expenses not covered by the ACHF Kathy Mac Scholar Fund and will be required to submit proof of the availability of these funds.

Post-meeting requirements for award recipients will include the following:

  • Make a brief presentation to the ACHF Board during their annual business meeting at the ACHA Annual Meeting.
  • Provide a written evaluation of the Scholar’s annual meeting experience that could be published in Action, Impact, ACHF webpage, or in other publications.
  • Become involved in a health center or campus project following the meeting.
