Today, we need open and willing leaders in healthcare to care for those who are in need of medical attention.

Since nearly 30 million people are left uninsured in the United States, most being low-income, these people often can’t get the medical attention they need without putting themselves deeper in financial uncertainty. 

Everyone deserves the right to live, and the medical field needs leaders who make it their priority to help those in need no matter their financial status. 

While there are many types of experts in the medical field, we need more research, leadership, and innovation from a multitude of backgrounds and experiences to propel our country toward our healthcare goals across all disciplines, uninfluenced by social barriers.

As one small solution to this, the First-Gen in Health & Medicine Scholarship will support one ambitious first-generation student in harnessing their full potential as a selfless health professional and helping them change the world for the better through their practice.

This annual scholarship is open to all high school, undergraduate, or graduate students who are planning to pursue or who are currently pursuing a degree and career in the medical field. To apply, please write about how your experience as a first-generation student has impacted your journey in medicine/healthcare.
