In 2012, the Healthcare Quality Foundation will award up to 14 individual grants to cover the cost of the CPHQ examination. Open to all National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) members, these grants are worth $370 each.
The grants are awarded twice a year, in February and August. The deadline for grant applications are January 31, 2012 (for the February award) and July 31, 2012 (August award).
More information about the CPHQ Certification Grant and how to apply for it can be found in this document [Microsoft Word—84 KB].
In addition, the HQF is also offering a New Quality Professional Grant to “a NAHQ member who has been employed in the healthcare quality field less than 2 years and is not yet a CPHQ. The grant is valued at $1,000, which can be used for travel and registration expenses for attendance at either a NAHQ CPHQ Review Course or the annual educational conference.”
