Travel Support

How does Foothills AHEC provide travel support?

Foothills AHEC offers travel stipends to advanced practice health profession students enrolled in an in-state academic program to relieve some of the costs incurred while performing eligible clinical rotations in our 31-county service area in northeast Georgia while remote from their academic campus.

  3. Lasts for a minimum of 8 days
