National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis

Donna Pfaendtner


Any NOSORH member may request travel scholarships to meet with another SORH to learn about a topic of importance to that member’s SORH.

Scholarships support travel which enable a NOSORH member to link with a mentor or peer at another SORH who will help that member:

  • Develop or enhance their rural health expertise or knowledge
  • Cultivate their leadership skills
  • Adopt a promising practice
  • Improve their program management and/or strategic planning and implementation effectiveness

SORH staff – including directors, FLEX coordinators, program coordinators or other staff – is eligible to apply for travel scholarships for educational exchange activities. Consultants to SORHs are not eligible.

NOSORH’s Web-based directory of SORH staff will be used to verify whether applicants are eligible for funding. Eligible applicants must also have the verifiable endorsement of their respective SORH director to apply for funds.
