Selection Criteria

The institute will accept approximately 8 – 10 teams each year and the selection committee will be looking for individuals and teams with experience and educational backgrounds in health related fields. The desire to facilitate change and demonstrated ability to get things done will be weighed heavily. Application requires the support and recommendation of your management. Those selected to be scholars for the year must be able to devote approximately 2 hours weekly to the Institute and have access to the internet. The selection committee will attempt to achieve a heterogeneous mix of community teams from all areas of the state and various public health settings along with their community partners.

Certificate Program

Participants who complete the year-long KPHLI experience will be awarded a Certificate in Public Health Leadership from the Kentucky College of Public Health.

3 - 6 hours of course credit will be available for scholars. Application of these hours to degree programs will be at the discretion of the learning institution/university and the individual program. Individuals wishing to receive college credit for KPHLI efforts need to make application to the undergraduate or graduate program separately and pay tuition for those credit hours.

CEU's will also be awarded for courses and seminars completed through KPHLI. It is estimated that 30-60 CEU's will be available through the program.

KPHLI will begin accepting applications September 1, 2014.
The application deadline is September 30, 2014.
