CREATE Health Scholars Application

Are you a college student interested in the health of Colorado?  Interested in a career that will contribute to the health of our community?  The CREATE Health Scholars program is open to Colorado undergraduate students from the following, and other related, disciplines: Allied Health, Advocacy & Policy, Behavioral Health, Communications, Environmental Health, Health Business, Food & Nutrition, Medicine, Nursing, Oral Health, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Research.

The CREATE Health Scholars program aims to create a unique cohort of professional leaders in Colorado health who are dedicated to rural and urban underserved communities.  CREATE Health Scholars (with residential or distance options) participate in a year-long program with a one-month summer intensive experience. The CREATE Health Scholars program will focus on:
  • cultivating integrated teams of health professionals who share the broadest possible understanding of health
  • improving each student's knowledge and performance in pre-health core curriculum areas
  • clarifying health career goals
  • enhancing the student professional school applications and MCAT/DAT/ PCAT/GRE scores
  • engaging students in collaborative community-based projects that will help make Colorado the healthiest state in the nation for generations to come.
The CREATE Health Scholars residential program takes place on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Regis University.   Participants in the distance-learning program can participate from anywhere in the state.

The online application for the CREATE Health Scholars program is now live and available here:

All application materials are due by March 16, and letters of recommendation are required. Students are strongly encouraged to complete their applications and request all supporting materials as soon as possible.
