American College Health Foundation Invites Applications for Student Health 101 Award

Since 1920, the American College Health Association and the American College Health Foundation have linked college health professionals throughout the nation (and more recently around the globe), forming a powerful, collaborative networking base.

The college environment is an important place and opportunity to engage young adults and influence them to establish lifelong healthy habits, while avoiding behaviors with adverse consequences. Health promotion delivered in creative ways with measurable outcomes is an invaluable tool.

To that end, the ACHF, in partnership with Student Health 101, is offering a $2,500 award to support new efforts to improve and promote health education programs on college campuses. Through the annual program, ACHF will award $2,500 for an initiative involving communications, research, advocacy, and other activities related to health prevention. The program is designed to fund the development of a creative initiative that involves student peers in an effort to promote healthy behaviors.

Only campus health professionals who are American College Health Association members are eligible to apply.

Visit the ACHA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
