Travel Support

Blue Ridge AHEC offers travel support to advance practice health profession students.  The student is eligible for travel support:

  • If he/she is completing a rotation in one of Blue Ridge AHEC’s 20 counties
  • If he/she is traveling to a clinical training rotation site in one of Blue Ridge AHEC’s counties which is outside the educational institution/home campus by at least 25 miles

For a clinical rotation lasting 20 days or more, the travel support will be in the amount of $50 per completed rotation.  For a clinical rotation lasting less than 20 days, the travel support will be in the amount of $25 per completed rotation.  Rotations must be a minimum of 8 days to be eligible for travel support.  Students receiving housing support are not eligible for travel support. Students are eligible to receive a maximum of two (2) travel support stipends during an academic year (July 1-June 30).
