AAHIMA aims to offer scholarships in support of HIM education:

Each year, the Alamo Area Health Information Management Association (AAHIMA) endeavors to award several education scholarships to students who demonstrate academic achievement and commitment to the field of health information management in Texas. AAHIMA promotes education and recruitment of new students as critical success factors for the HIM profession. As a recipient of the scholarship, you will have the opportunity to be recognized at the AAHIMA Workshop Annual Meeting held late August early September.

AAHIMA supports the professional development of individuals engaged in the undergraduate study of health information technology, health information management, and/or graduate study in health information management or related fields. Scholarships are awarded through AAHIMA designated funds.

Candidates for the scholarship must submit applications using the online process through the AAHIMA website. The decision to award the scholarship is made by the AAHIMA Board.
