Application Now Open for Eric Dick Memorial Advocacy Scholarship


MNAAP is now accepting applications for the Eric Dick Memorial Advocacy Scholarship. Applications are due by 5 p.m on Friday, Oct. 27, 2023. Award decisions will be announced no later than Friday, Nov. 10, 2023.

Named for MNAAP’s late long-time lobbyist, the Eric Dick Memorial Advocacy Scholarship will be awarded annually to one or more residents or medical students to engage in legislative advocacy projects aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of children in Minnesota – particularly those focused on eliminating health disparities.

Advocacy scholars will be supported in implementing their projects by MNAAP’s Public Policy Work Group Co-Chairs and contract lobbyist. In 2023, we will award up to two scholarships ranging from $2,500 – $5,000, depending on the scale of the project.
