Health IT Scholarships 

The Health IT micropathway offers a limited number of scholarship opportunities for students for the 2023-2024 academic year. This scholarship seeks to support students from underrepresented backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career in Health Information Technology. This year, our funders include Seattle Children’s Hospital. This scholarship aligns with Seattle Children’s strategic imperatives of equity, diversity, and inclusion in addition to the organization's anti-racism goals.
