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. Applicants for this scholarship may be from an undergraduate OR graduate AUPHA member program.
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.
