Objectives: The purpose of this grant program is to provide grants to accredited schools of public health and to other public or nonprofit private institutions accredited for the provision of graduate or specialized training in severe workforce shortage disciplines of public health. The PHT Program will provide traineeship support to cover the costs associated with tuition, fees, stipends and allowances (including travel and subsistence expenses and dependency allowances) for students pursuing graduate training or specialized education in six core public health disciplines (epidemiology, environmental health, biostatistics, toxicology, nutrition and maternal and child health) identified in the legislative language as severe workforce shortage areas. The traineeship support is to encourage students to pursue and continue their training in the public health shortage disciplines identified. Students receiving traineeship support must also participate in public health practice-based field placements particularly in state and local health departments and/or in underserved communities.
