Community Health Scholars Program

The Community Health Scholars Program is currently closed for new applications. Please check back later for updates on our next cycle of Community Health Scholars. 

Are you interested in learning more about community-based research? Do you have a passion for alleviating health disparities in the metro Detroit area? If so, the Community Health Scholars Program (CHSP) might be the right program for you!
The Center for Health Equity and Community Knowledge in Urban Populations (CHECK-UP) at Wayne State University is now recruiting for the 2022 CHSP. Community Scholars will learn the different roles and responsibilities in health research and gain skills that give learners the knowledge to serve in community-based research roles. Community Scholars will attend 8 biweekly, virtual classes, and gain hands-on experience with research through existing health promotion projects. Virtual instruction runs from late June through early October 2022.
