The charter scholarships mark the inaugural year of Michigan's two-year health informatics master's degree program which begins in Fall 2012. The final application deadline is May 1.

In addition to the master's program, Michigan also offers a graduate certificate program. Both the certificate and the master's degree programs are offered jointly by the University of Michigan School of Public Health and School of Information.

Health informatics is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses informational, computational, behavioral and organizational sciences, as well as a deep understanding of health systems and processes. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that health information management and health informatics employment will grow nearly 18 percent by 2016.
