New Upsilon Phi Delta Grant

AUPHA is pleased to announce a new Upsilon Phi Delta Grant Program. Consistent with the goals of UPD, AUPHA seeks to elevate the standards, ideals, competence and ethics of professionally educated students in healthcare management and policy and leadership. Often, programs within UPD have innovative initiatives that cannot be implemented because of the lack of funds. Consequently, AUPHA has pledged to fund two (2), $2,500 competitive UPD Grants each year for at least the next six (6) years.

The grants will be awarded to one Undergraduate UPD Chapter and one Graduate UPD Chapter each year. UPD Chapters in good standing will be eligible to apply for a grant. Grants must be used to benefit the UPD Chapter and the program’s healthcare management students. For example, grants can be used to fund:

  • Programs for UPD students
  • Speakers on healthcare management
  • Graduation events
  • Scholarships
The chapters chosen to receive the 2019 UPD Grants will be notified on May 21, 2019 and recognized during the 2019 AUPHA Annual Meeting.

Contact Chris Anne Sanyer, Director of Membership, for questions about the UPD Grant or how to set up a UPD Chapter to recognize your students.
