About the Center for Injury Research and Policy Summer Institute
The Summer Institute connects participants with public health leaders in injury prevention and control to explore real-world concerns and solutions for injury prevention.
The Center’s Summer Institute includes two courses, Principles and Practice of Injury Prevention and Advanced Seminar in Injury Prevention, which are both offered this year and open to the public. Professionals and practitioners from diverse fields benefit from this intensive training in public health approach to injury and violence prevention.
Tuition and Funding
Through the generosity of the John F. Finklea Fellowship from the CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, one or more attendees will receive support for their Summer Institute tuition for either one of the two courses offered. The Finklea Scholarship is open to all attendees. Scholarship recipients are expected to attend and participate in the entire Summer Institute.
To be considered for this scholarship award, please submit a curriculum vita or resume and a brief statement describing why you want to attend the Institute and how it will help your career in injury prevention (500 word maximum) to Shannon Frattaroli (email@example.com).
The application deadline is April 15, 2023. A committee of Institute faculty will make selections and all applicants will be notified by April 30, 2023. To reserve your spot in the course, you may register without paying until you receive notification of your award status.
