Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Foundation/HIMSS Foundation Scholarship Program

2 scholarships are awarded, 1 to an Undergraduate and 1 to a Master's student enrolled in a program related to the healthcare information and technology field. In addition to the $5,000 scholarship award, the recipient will also receive a trip to the HIMSS Global Health Conference and Exhibition (some restrictions may apply). The primary occupation of the applicant at the time the scholarship is awarded must be that of student in an accredited undergraduate or graduate program related to the health information and technology field. The specific degree program is not a critical factor, although it is expected that programs similar to those in industrial engineering, operations research, bioinformatics, health informatics, computer science and information systems, mathematics, and quantitative programs in business administration, clinical disciplines, and health administration will predominate. Applicant should also be a current member in good standing of HIMS but not currently serving on one of HIMSS boards. S/he also cannot be currently employed by HIMSS, nor engaged in a consulting contract with any component of HIMSS.
