Advanced Track Field Program

We will begin accepting applications for September classes in April 2024 from students in the NV CHW Association Foundational Training program. Check back between April and August to be considered by the selection committee.

**The Field Grant Opportunity is Closed**

You must sign up for an eligible CHW class to receive an invitation to apply for this grant.
Over 3 years, 150 students will be selected from Clark, Lincoln, and Esmeralda Counties

❤️ The advanced track program helps CHWs learn more skills and pursue career advancement. Opportunities to begin specialized services can lead to deeper levels of care to benefit your community. You may even decide that you want to pursue a health care license after completing the program

❤️ The selection committee will choose 60 students in the third year to receive a Chromebook, one year data plan, mentorship, funding to apply for the required CHW II Certification, field placement, or apprenticeship. Field placements may be completed with your employer or one chosen with the team

❤️ Field work must be paid by the employer and you will receive an additional $4,800 from Intermountain Health to help you overcome barriers to your success and complete additional health classes. Please complete your Intermountain paperwork promptly so that you can receive the stipend: $2,400 after your first 4 weeks of passing online homework and $2,400 mailed after you complete the core training. Stipend payments may take several weeks to arrive so turn your homework in on time to prevent delays.
