Current MPH student writes successful grant application for local organization.
Congratulations to Catherine Miller, an MPH student with a concentration in Community Health Education. Catherine recently learned that a grant application she submitted to the Cigna Foundation was approved for nearly $90,000. The grant will supply funding for Centro Hispano de East Tennessee.
Catherine originally wrote the grant proposal as part of an assignment for public health coarse 556 – Grant Proposal Writing for Health and Social Programs.
Way to put classwork into action in the real world, Catherine!
