American Heart Association Offers Scholarships in Medicine for Multicultural Women
The American Heart Association is offering a scholarship designed to drive diversity in medicine.
In an effort to ease the burden of college tuition hikes during these rough economic times and increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine, the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women™ and Macy's, its national sponsor, offer the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship is designed to drive diversity in medicine and directly address important gaps in treatment that can lead to heart health disparities.
Sixteen deserving racially/ethnically diverse females will receive a $2,500 scholarship to support them in their studies. Candidates must complete an application, personal essay and submit two letters of recommendation. Online applications are available through Nov. 30, 2012. Scholarship recipients will be announced in February 2013. Go here for more information.
