Annual Conference Student Sponsorship

Student Sponsor

Thank you for your interest in supporting a student to attend the 2019 IRHA Annual Conference. The student scholarship applications have closed, so the sponsorship application have also closed.

We will be opening the sponsorship application for the 2020 IRHA Annual Conference in February 2020.


One of the goals of the Indiana Rural Health Association is to help recruit students in the health professions to practice in the rural communities. The Association believes that one of the best ways to do this is to provide opportunities for students to interact with professionals who are committed to practicing in the rural setting and to attend educational sessions geared toward rural practices. Since the IRHA Annual Conference is the largest gathering of such professionals and educational sessions, this is the best opportunity to introduce students to rural health professionals. The cost of a student to attend the Annual Conference in June is $515 per student. This cost covers the registration fee, all conference meals and two nights hotel stay.
