Mental health or healthcare

Physical and mental health are intrinsically intertwined and significantly affect one’s quality of life and experiences.

The fields of mental and physical health are essential to the safety and well-being of the world. When health industries lack diversity, patients from underrepresented communities suffer as a result. Mental health and healthcare agencies are in need of more providers of color who have lived experiences as minority individuals. 

This scholarship seeks to support the next generation of mental and physical health professionals as they pursue their academic goals.

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student of Caribbean descent who is pursuing mental health or healthcare may apply for this scholarship opportunity.

To apply, tell us about yourself, your ambitions, how your background has impacted your path, and the effect mental health has had on you.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Passion
