This virtual informational session was hosted by Evelyne Kane, the National Consumer Scholars Program Manager, as well as Alayna Tillman and Stephanie Burdick, two of our Consumer Scholar alumni. We welcomed people with lived experience who may be interested in applying to be a Consumer Scholar, as well as staff/providers of complex care organizations who may be interested in referring someone to the program to attend this information session.

During this informational session, we:

  • Provided an overview of the National Consumer Scholars program, including program requirements, eligibility, and award details.
  • Discussed the application process and timeline.
  • Answered questions from attendees about the program and/or application process.

Applications for the 2021-2022 National Consumer Scholars cohort close June 11, 2021. If you have questions about the National Consumer Scholars program or the request for applications, please feel free to email Evelyne Kane at
