Healthcare Student Scholarship

As a healthcare student, you may be eligible for a discount on your upcoming global medical outreach trip with Power of a Nickel. This discount is intended for those wishing to conduct research related to activities encountered on the medical trip. Awards are made of $500 toward fees for Central and South America and $750 for Asia, Europe, and Africa. A research article, poster presentation, article for publication or presentation at an accredited venue, or a publishable case study is required. It is the responsibility of the healthcare student to develop the research plan, methodology, data collection, and results analysis.  In addition, the student must obtain IRB approval (if required) prior to scholarship awarding. Research submission for publication (or other format as applicable) within 6 months of the completion of the trip is required. The Power of a Nickel and staff is available for assistance if needed. Failure to complete the research within the timeframe will result in the requirement to repay the $500/$750 to Power of a Nickel.

If you are interested, applications will be taken until the final payment for the trip in which you are participating is due. Scroll down for the application for the research scholarship.  

Typically 3-4 scholarships are awarded per trip - but it is totally at the discretion of the scholarship committee based on the applications received.  

You will be advised of the selections before the final payment deadline for the trip.
