2023 Awards, Scholarships, and Fellowships Application Cycle is Open

The Foundation for the Advancement of Health Education (FAHE) application cycle for awards, scholarships, and fellowships is open for 2023. Criteria for each opportunity are listed on application pages that can be accessed on the Awards, Scholarships, and Fellowships page. All applicants are evaluated on the caliber of their submitted documents.
