The Chicago-based HIMSS Foundation, dedicated to inspiring charitable giving and education within the healthcare industry, has opened its college scholarship application period.
The Foundation says it has also introduced five new scholarships among its 2008-2009 academic awards. Applicants can apply through Oct. 30 for the scholarships, which are designed for undergraduate and graduate student members of HIMSS who are studying health information technology and management systems.
Scholarship recipients will receive an all-expense paid trip to the 2009 Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition on April 4-8, 2009, in Chicago. The recipients also will be honored at the 2009 HIMSS Awards and Recognition Banquet during the conference.
