Academic Sponsoring Associations

The following information will assist you in determining the appropriate association through which to apply:

American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN)
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is the national voice for baccalaureate and graduate nursing education. AACN's educational, research, federal advocacy, data collection, publications, and special programs work to establish quality standards for nursing education; assist deans and directors to implement those standards; influence the nursing profession to improve health care; and promote public support for professional nursing education, research, and practice. AACN represents more than 700 member schools of nursing at public and private universities and senior colleges nationwide. These schools offer a mix of baccalaureate, graduate, and post-graduate programs. AACN is affiliated with the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education, the nation's premiere accrediting body for baccalaureate and higher degree nursing programs.

Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR)
Established in 1942, the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) is the professional organization for individuals and institutions who advance the education of physicians and other health professionals in prevention and population health. APTR represents over 150 institutional members and their faculty, including graduate public health programs, medical school departments of preventive and community medicine, medical school departments with a population health focus, health professions schools, and various health agencies. APTR individual members are undergraduate and graduate public health faculty, researchers, practitioners, administrators, residents and students from across the health professions. Through the APTR Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health, APTR is the organizing body for the accredited and emerging graduate public health programs in the U.S. APTR develops curricular resources, professional development programs, and tools for its diverse membership. We bring together individuals and institutions devoted to health promotion and disease prevention to redefine how we educate the health professions workforce.

Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
Founded in 1876 and based in Washington, D.C., the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) is a not-for-profit association representing all 141 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools; nearly 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems, including 51 Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers; and 90 academic and scientific societies. Through these institutions and organizations, the AAMC represents 128,000 faculty members, 75,000 medical students, and 110,000 resident physicians. To receive funding through the AAMC-CDC cooperative agreement, the Principal Investigator must be on staff at one of the accredited medical schools, teaching hospitals or societies that the AAMC represents.

Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH)
The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) is the only national organization representing the deans, faculty, and students of 50 Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited universities and the eight universities currently seeking CEPH accreditation as schools of public health. These schools have over 12,000 teaching and research faculty and educate more than 28,000 students annually from every state in the U.S. and most countries throughout the world. The schools graduate approximately 9,700 professionals each year. To receive funding through the ASPPH-CDC cooperative agreement, the Principal Investigator must be a fully appointed faculty at one of the CEPH accredited schools of public health that ASPPH represents.
