HAP Student Selected as David A. Winston Health Policy Scholarship Recipient
June 11, 2015
Stephen Petzinger, a graduate student in the Masters of Science in Health and Medical Policy program at George Mason, has been selected to receive one of 10 $10,000 scholarships from the David A. Winston Health Policy Scholarship Program.
The scholarship program, which is administered in collaboration with the Association of University Programs in Health Administration, aims to increase the number and quality of individuals trained in health care policy at the state and federal level by awarding deserving health policy students financial support to further their education. It recognizes student excellence and achievement based on the student’s record, recommendations from faculty and colleagues, and evidence of their interest in and commitment to health policy.
During his time at Mason, Petzinger has worked as a graduate research assistant to Len Nichols, director of the Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics. He currently serves as president of the AcademyHealth Student Chapter at George Mason, and recently accepted a position as a program examiner at the Office of Management and Budget within the Executive Office of the President. In the fall, Petzinger will attend a two-day health policy symposium, designed to provide Winston Scholars with an in-depth view of health policy in Washington, D.C.
