Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to have a college degree to participate in the program?
No. Applicants will be selected based on multiple factors, such as employment history, life experience, service, and leadership. There is no minimum education requirement for the Culture of Health Leaders program
How much time will the program require each month?
Participants can anticipate spending 32 to 38 hours a month on program activities. A significant portion of that time will be self-directed through online learning, recorded webinars, and activities into which participants can self-select. In some months, usually on a quarterly basis, the participant experience will include in-person activities* and project work that span over multiple days. This design provides flexibility for the participants.
*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all trainings and events will be virtual until it is safe to conduct them in person.
Do I need to identify a project for my application?
The Culture of Health Leaders program does not require you to have a project identified when you apply. During your participation in the program, you’ll apply your learning to initiate work to build a Culture of Health.
What are the reporting requirements for sponsoring institutions?
Sponsoring institutions will submit a brief budget report annually. There are no other reporting requirements.
Will I be able to use my stipend to pay for childcare?
I am retired or will be retired soon. Am I eligible to apply?
Applicants are not required to be employed or at any particular point in their work history. We welcome all applicants who meet the eligibility criteria.
Will there be changes to the program because of COVID-19?
Events normally held in-person will be virtual until it is safe to conduct them in person. However, much of the curriculum is intended to be completed in your own community. Any and all changes to the program curriculum, timeline, or experience will be communicated frequently and clearly.
