The United Health Foundation in partnership with UNCF has established a multi-year renewable scholarship program open to students attending any accredited four-year college or university giving preference to students enrolled at one of the 37 UNCF member institutions. Students must be planning to pursue a degree that will lead to a career in the primary care industry.
- * Students must be enrolled full-time at an accredited four year college or university (UNCF member institutions preferred);
- * Must have a minimum of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale;
- * Must be classified as a senior for the 2020 Fall semester with the intention to attend graduate school upon the completion of their senior year.
- * Must major in one of the following academic areas, behavioral health, biochemistry, biological sciences, biology, biomedical research, biotechnical health, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health or radiology.
For full award consideration in the 2020-2021 academic year, students must submit an application online with a one-page essay describing their career aspirations, intended plans for graduate school following their undergraduate graduation, leadership experiences, and their most significant achievements. Candidates must also invite one reference to submit a recommendation online.
Scholarship recipients will be expected to participate in both the UNCF Student Leadership Conference and the annual United Health Foundation Diverse Scholars Initiative Forum, both held in Washington, DC in early summer. Scholar round trip travel and accommodations are included for both professional development events.
