2017 HIMSS Washington Student Scholarship Program

HIMSS WA HIT Student Scholarship Program

2017 Award Period Coming This Fall!

The Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) recognizes the importance of preparing the next generation of professionals. Through the scholarship program, we are able to support students as they pursue a career in Health Information Technology (HIT). The introduction to the HIMSS WA organization also gives students opportunities to meet colleagues and prospective employers.

To apply for the scholarships, candidates complete a detailed application outlining their scholastic achievement, leadership skills and industry-related training/experience. They also complete essays and supply academic references to support their candidacy. Each winner is required to be an HIMSS WA member and agree to actively participate in at least two HIMSS WA activities a year.

Applications for the 2017 Scholarship Program will open in mid-September with awards granted in early November. Check back for more information on the upcoming scholarship period, or email the HIMSS Washington Scholarship Chair, Kailey Tollefson at kaileytollefson@gmail.com.
