Go Red Multicultural Scholarship Fund for NURSING SCHOOL! APPLY and Live a Life Making a Difference
We are very excited to announce the second year of the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund this month which directly addresses important gaps in treatment that can lead to heart health disparities among Hispanic and African American women. The scholarship, funded by Macy’s, helps support the efforts of the American Heart Association to reach women of diverse backgrounds with heart-health information and resources. Applications for the national scholarship open now through November 30, 2012. The scholarship helps place medical and nursing school within the reach of deserving racial and ethnic female candidates and strives to increase diversity in the healthcare workforce.
