FEDERAL MEDICAL LEGISLATION
First Session, 85th Congress
Public Health Training and Services
Senator Humphrey (D., Minn.), in S. 2304, would "amend the Public Health Service Act to provide an emergency five-year program of grants and scholarships for post-graduate education in the field of public health." He would authorize the appropriation of 1 million dollars annually, for five years, for subsidies to maintain and increase enrollments in schools of public health. A school could receive 15% of the basic operating costs of graduate instruction plus $500 for each full-time student in excess of the average past enrollment, plus $500 for each student enrolled in excess of 30 students. He would authorize also the appropriation of 1 million dollars for five years for construction and equipment of schools of public health, but grants could not exceed 50% of the total cost. The bill also contains an authorization for $250,000 annually for scholarships
