Past scholarship sources:


Through its Colorado Kids 1st Grant Program, the Rocky Mountain Research & Prevention Institute (RMRPI) provides scholarships for child safety and injury prevention advocates and professionals to participate as fellows in the Advanced Leadership Training Program (ALTP) of the Regional Institute for Health and Environmental Leadership (RIHEL). Scholarship details and an application form will be available when these funds are made available again.
The ALTP has truly been life-changing! With the scholarship support of Colorado Kids First, the focus of my project was on suicide prevention among children. (Yes, there is a project!) While I probably could have taken the easier path and developed another suicide awareness-raising event, I decided to accept the leadership challenge and push myself to step outside my comfort zone. Using a partnership approach between Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Colorado Department of Public Health, I inspired a shared vision to prevent youth suicides. Through a collaborative effort, we are now working to train hospital staff on how to counsel parents of adolescents at-risk for suicide about the dangers of firearms and drugs in their house and how to store them safely. Prior to ALTP, I was not the kind of person that would have asked one of the largest hospitals in the state to do work related to firearms and suicide. But what I learned in ALTP empowered me to lead an effort that I feel very passionate about.
