UVM CORA Scholarship Application
ONLY ONE APPLICATION IS NEEDED PER PRACTICE. Please read the overview of the Best Practices Scholarship Program before completing the application. Complete the following questions and submit your application to us by November 30th, 2020.

The Best Practices Scholarship Program provides the opportunity for two days of in-person comprehensive training and consultation at the University of Vermont with Center on Rural Addiction (UVM CORA) faculty and staff experts. It is intended for teams of up to four individuals from rural practices in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, or New York who are hoping to:

1) Learn how to better support patients with complex needs related to substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD),

2) Receive extensive training on topics related to OUD and SUD with a specific focus on evidence-based best practices and how to enhance prevention and treatment in rural communities, and

3) Explore issues or challenges occurring within their own practice with other experts in the field and gain the skills and resources necessary to make improvements.

Travel, room and board, continuing education credits, and a stipend for time away from the office are covered by CORA for all participants involved in the program. Our aim in covering all costs is to better support rural practices who may not be able to afford high training expenses or lost work hours.
