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.

Health care professionals dedicate their lives to public service and providing for local communities through their practice, but many prospective providers don’t have the opportunity to graduate with a degree debt-free. 

Today in medicine there is a problem. Doctors are more likely to evaluate Black patients’ pain as less than that of white patients with the same symptoms. Numerous studies show that patients of color feel less safe with doctors than White patients, and also see improved health outcomes when they see Black doctors.

The Bervell Health Equity Scholarship is designed to support students dedicated to providing equitable healthcare opportunities for underrepresented minorities and low-income communities across the country. All college students and graduate students dedicated to this mission and pursuing a career related to healthcare are eligible to apply.

To apply, please write no more than 300-500 words about experiences that have prepared you to work for an under-served community, challenges you’ve overcome, and the unique perspectives you bring to the table. 

While not required, students that are first-generation college students, BIPOC, and/or from the LGBTQ+ community are highly encouraged to apply.
