Who Can Apply:
- As the driving force of opportunity today, everyone should have access to a good education to power their future and provide for later generations, especially those doing work for underrepresented communities.
- African Americans represent about 11% of the US population, but only around 4% of doctors. So in addition to supporting underserved communities, it’s important that we increase representation in medical schools, pharmacy schools, dental schools, and the healthcare field more broadly.
- Healthcare professionals dedicate their lives to public service and providing for local communities through their practice, but many prospective medical professionals don’t have the opportunity to graduate with a degree debt-free.
- The MedLuxe Representation Matters Scholarship is designed to support students dedicated to providing equitable healthcare opportunities for underrepresented minorities and low-income communities across the country. All Black college students dedicated to this mission and pursuing a major related to healthcare are eligible to apply.
Submission: To apply, please write about your goals and why it’s important to increase racial diversity in healthcare.
Deadline: February 26, 2023
