The Chair's Diversity Scholarship

In order to facilitate an avenue for increasing diversity in the Anesthesiologist Assistant Program, the Department of Anesthesiology is pleased to sponsor the Chair's Diversity Scholarship to provide support to students that are traditionally underrepresented in health science graduate programs.

Scholarship funds are available to both incoming students and second-year students. Admitted students and current eligible students (students finishing their first year and preparing to start their second year in the Program) will receive more information regarding the scholarship application process when it is time to apply.

Recipient must be a member of a traditionally underrepresented minority in health science graduate programs (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Pacific Islander, Native American/Alaska Native, Vietnamese, or rural students). Selection criteria will include academic achievements, a one-page essay, scholarly achievements, community and/or volunteer service and whether the applicant is a first-generation college graduate (not required to apply).
