Mini-grant program

Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center, hosted by the university’s Nursing and Health Professions department, has granted more than $17,000 in funding as part of its 2015-2016 Mini-Grant Program.

The funds are given to nine tax-exempt organizations in the area. Organizations from surrounding counties that promote health careers for youth and engage health professions students were eligible to receive a mini-grant.

Some of the organizations that will be receiving the mini-grants are the Dare to Dream Mentoring Program, YWCA of Evansville and St. Mary’s Medical Center.
