Glandon Family Scholarship

Purpose of Award

The Glandon Family Scholarship for Advancement of Healthcare Management Education was established to create an endowment for a faculty scholarship at an AUPHA member program with the intent of creating a durable legacy in support of quality healthcare management education. While scholarships and awards exist for research and professional service, those committed primarily to educating our future healthcare leaders rarely exist. Many of these individuals become the core of academic programs with appropriate mentorship and motivation. The scholarship is aimed at these future educational leaders by giving them recognition and financial support at an early stage of their career. Ideally, the scholarship will be awarded to a faculty member from an undergraduate program in one year and from a graduate program the alternative year. The 2021 Glandon Family Scholarship will be awarded to  faculty from an undergraduate program member.


The $5,000 Scholarship is available to full time faculty in an AUPHA member program who have not yet received tenure. Individuals eligible for The Glandon Family Scholarship include faculty who are employed by a member program where no tenure track is available to them.

Preference will be given to individuals in the early stages of their career. Association leadership will award the Scholarship to a faculty member with demonstrated academic performance to date and outstanding potential. The funds, awarded to the faculty member, must support advancing knowledge of content area and/or educational techniques for the individual faculty member. The application should make those positive outcomes clear.

Criteria for Selection

For those eligible, selection will be based upon:
  • Demonstrated successful academic performance as a classroom teacher, educational technology innovator or student mentor. Letter from program director/chair.
  • Commitment to healthcare management education as a career option. Personal statement
  • Evidence of impact on students. The student should have observed the faculty in action and be willing to provide evidence of impact. Letter of recommendation from a current student.
