The Bridging the Gap (BTG) course trains bilingual/multilingual individuals to work as medical interpreters in hospitals, clinics, and other health care settings. In 2023, The Cross Cultural Health Care Program (CCHCP) will award two scholarships, one for the 64-hour course in June and another 40-hour course in July. The scholarships will cover the full tuition cost of the course for the recipient.
These scholarships will be awarded to two individuals who demonstrate why having trained medical interpreters will benefit their community and how they plan to use this class to improve the quality of care for patients with limited English proficiency. Individuals who are awarded these scholarships and attend the Bridging the Gap course will be highlighted in our organization’s newsletter, social media pages, and website. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of successful completion.
Please note that each applicant is eligible to receive only one scholarship.
International applicants are welcome to apply. Please note that there will be additional international shipping costs the applicants would have to cover.
