- Local Branches
COA's partner organization, the PHS Commissioned Officers Foundation for the Advancement of Public Health, offers an annual scholarship for undergraduate and graduate students sponsored by a COA member in good standing.
The scholarships are funded by active and retired Public Health Service officers, COA Local Branches, and others. We thank them for their generosity.
Applicants must be the spouse or biological, step, or adoptive child or grandchild of a COA member in good standing. Applicants must be registered students for undergraduate or graduate study at schools located in the United States.
A review committee composed of donors and COA members selects the scholarship recipients. Winners are announced in the newsletter Frontline and posted online at www.phscof.org.
The call for applications is typically posted on www.phscof.org in March with a deadline of early June.
