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.
African Americans represent about 11% of the US population, but only around 4% of doctors. So in addition to supporting underserved communities, it's important that we increase representation in medical schools, pharmacy schools, dental schools, and the healthcare field more broadly.
Healthcare professionals dedicate their lives to public service and providing for local communities through their practice, but many prospective medical professionals don’t have the opportunity to graduate with a degree debt-free.
The MedLuxe Representation Matters Scholarship is designed to support students dedicated to providing equitable healthcare opportunities for underrepresented minorities and low-income communities across the country. All Black college students dedicated to this mission and pursuing a major related to healthcare are eligible to apply.
To apply, please write about your goals and why it’s important to increase racial diversity in healthcare.
What goals do you have for your medical career? Why do you believe it’s important to increase racial diversity in healthcare?

The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
