The Kristin Miles Memorial Student Scholarship honors Kristin’s commitment to ensuring that law students had every opportunity to participate in Washington State Society of Healthcare Attorneys (WSSHA) programs. She was ever vigilant in reminding the Board of our obligations to advance the education of future members by making our programs accessible to the law student community. While we cannot replace Kristin’s passion, dedication and always present good humor, we honor her by providing this support to a law student each year.

The scholarship provides:

  • All seminar fees to the WSSHA Annual Hospital & Health Law Mid-Year Seminar Friday, November 1 & Saturday, November 2, 2019 in Vancouver, B.C.;
  • One night lodging at the conference hotel, the Pan Pacific Hotel; and
  • $50/per diem for a maximum of two days.


Any second- or third-year J.D. student, as well as any LL.M. student, enrolled in a law school located in the state of Washington, including previous applicants not selected who are encouraged to re-apply.

WSSHA will select one winner from each law school located in the state of Washington.


Provide a résumé and a brief statement (1 page or less) about why you are interested in healthcare law.
