Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane..” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Despite many advances in civil and human rights over the last 50 years, access to insurance and quality of healthcare continue to be influenced by a person’s income, race/ethnicity, gender, education level and location. The Kotick Health Equity Scholarship honors a man who spent his career working to increase access to quality healthcare and improve people’s health and lives in the County of Los Angeles. He began his work as a student at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles.
Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply if they are attending USC in Los Angeles and have experience working with non-profit organizations or volunteering. Preference will be given to students pursuing degrees with a focus in public health, public policy, and law. To apply, write about why you are passionate about improving the health of those with limited access to healthcare.
