2019 ASHEcon Diversity Scholarship

In an effort to encourage participation by underrepresented communities, the American Society of Health Economics (ASHEcon) jointly with the National Institute of Aging (NIA) funded Center on the Demography and Economics of Health and Aging at Stanford University are offering up to twenty scholarships aimed at underrepresented minorities and/or individuals whose background or life circumstances indicate they have overcome substantial obstacles (e.g., disabled individuals, sexual and gender minorities, etc.)  conducting research in health economics. While at the conference, the fellowship recipients will have the opportunity to formally network with each other and with members of the ASHEcon board and Diversity Committee, recognizing them, their accomplishments and bright futures. They will also have many opportunities to informally network with other students and professionals during the conference. All applications will be reviewed by ASHEcon’s Diversity Committee.

A CV and one letter of recommendation from a professor (preferably the advisor) or employer is required.
