Healthcare Scholarship: The Marion B. Pollock Fellowship

Overview of the Marion B. Pollock Fellowship

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) awards The Marion B. Pollock Fellowship to talented primary and secondary school teachers who wish to pursue graduate study. In order to qualify, applicants must demonstrate their professional commitment as teachers, whether at the elementary, middle or high school level. They must also be currently enrolled in an accredited postsecondary institution in the United States or a U.S. territory, in a health education program at the master’s level. Applicants must have already completed six credit hours in the program of study, at the time of application.

All applications will be judged for evidence of teaching experience, professional goals, ability to advance the field of school health education, the caliber of documents submitted, and ability to link individual children’s health needs to the study of school health education.

Applications must contain an application form and a resume or curriculum vitae, with information on professional publications, memberships, presentations and awards, community service activities, and any other extra-curricular or professional activities. Applicants must also submit a transcript showing coursework from the most recently awarded degree. Finally, all applicants should submit a personal narrative of up to five pages and three letters of recommendation. The personal narrative should describe the role of school health education in addressing the contemporary needs of school-aged children. The narrative should also address the applicant’s goals, both personally and professionally. Finally, this narrative should address how further study will help advance the health of children and youth.

All applications should be submitted either by postal mail or electronically by January 15th, to the Society for Public Health Education. Note, however, that deadlines can vary somewhat from one year to the next. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to consult the SOPHE website for full, up-to-date information.

Recipients of the Marion B. Pollock Fellowship receive $3,000, good towards their tuition and general financial needs associated with pursuing an advanced degree in health education. The recipient should be prepared to attend the SOPHE Annual Meeting in late March, in Baltimore, MD. During the Awards Ceremony and Gala, the Fellowship recipient will be publicly honored and awarded with the prize. The prize is a one-time honor and is not renewable. Only one award is granted, each year.
