HIMSS Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship
HIMSS Foundation Master’s Scholarship
HIMSS Foundation Doctorate Scholarship

3 scholarships are awarded (one per level of study) to an undergraduate, Masters and PhD student enrolled in a program related to the healthcare information and management systems field. In addition to the $5,000 scholarship award, the winner will also receive an all-expense paid trip to the Awards Gala at the Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition. (Some restrictions may apply.)

Applicants for the Healthcare Information Management Systems 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 information or 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, healthcare informatics, computer science and information systems, 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.
