The United Health Foundation is providing more than $1.2 million in college scholarships to more than 200 students from diverse, multicultural backgrounds this coming school year.
The college scholarships, which average $5,000 per student, are being offered through United Health Foundation's Divers Scholars Initiative, awarded to African-American students, American-Indians students, Asian-American students, and Latino and Hispanic students planning to pursue health care careers.
“These outstanding scholars will be an integral part of the future of our nation’s health care system and a health care work force that reflects the rich diversity of our country. Helping to supporting and develop these diverse, future health care leaders is one way that the United Health Foundation works to improve our communities’, and our nation’s, health and well-being,” said Jeannine Rivet, UnitedHealth Group executive vice president and interim president of United Health Foundation.
