The National Hispanic Health Foundation, affiliated with the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, will award 20 scholarships to graduate nursing, public health, health policy, dental or medical school students who exhibit exceptional academic performance, leadership, and commitment to the Hispanic community. Eleven scholars will receive a 2 year scholarship for $5,000 per year. Nine scholars will receive a 1 year scholarship for $2,000. The scholarships will be presented to awardees at the National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship Galas in Los Angeles, CA on November 21, 2013 and New York City, NY on December 5, 2013.
The National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF), a 501c3 entity, established “The Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship” to reward students in health policy and health professional programs for exceptional academic performance, leadership, and commitment to their community.
Before this effort, there were no national scholarships for Hispanic students in the health professions. Given the demand for increased support for this group, NHHF is uniquely positioned to implement a successful national scholarship. NHHF is affiliated with the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, which has developed leaders in public service, public health and health services research arenas.
The application can be accessed on the NHHF website at www.nhmafoundation.org.
Application Deadlines for Students: October 4, 2013. Awards will be announced via e-mail one month prior to the Dinner Events. The applications may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to (202) 628-5898 or by regular mail to:
