The call for applications will open in July 2017. Please check back for more information.

The Richard P. Covert, Ph.D., LFHIMSS Scholarship for Management Systems is awarded to a student pursuing a degree from an academic program (undergraduate or higher) that engenders the use of Management Engineering. In addition to the $5000 scholarship award, the winner will also receive an all-expense paid trip to the Awards Banquet at the Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition. (Some restrictions may apply.)

Applicants for the Richard P. Covert, Ph.D., LFHIMSS scholarships must fulfill these minimum requirements:
  • The applicant must be a member in good standing of HIMSS
  • The primary occupation of the applicant at the time the scholarship is awarded must be that of student in an accredited undergraduate, Masters or PhD program related to the healthcare management systems field. The specific degree program is not a critical factor, although it is expected that programs similar to those in industrial engineering, operations research, mathematics, and quantitative programs in business administration and hospital administration will predominate.
  • Undergraduate applicants must be at least a first-term junior when the scholarship is awarded.
  • Previous Foundation Scholarship winners are ineligible.
