• The National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship Program 

The National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship Program  is the only national scholarship program targeted at Hispanic students who are committed to careers in health care and enrolled full-time in dental, medical, nursing, public health, and policy schools. The 2015 awardees will receive their scholarships at the Scholarship Galas in Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY.  

There is a dearth of Hispanic health professionals in the United States. Only four percent of all physicians, three percent of all dentists, and two percent of all total nurses are Hispanic. We must increase these numbers. The National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF) has developed a unique program to award scholarships to talented students, the future leaders in health care.

NHHF, the 501c3 arm of the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA), is building on NHMA's network in developing The National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship, which rewards students in health policy and health professional programs for exceptional academic performance, leadership, and commitment to their community. NHHF is located at the New York Academy of Medicine and is affiliated with the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, which has developed leaders in public service, public health, and health services research arenas.

Established in 1994 in Washington, DC, the NHMA represents licensed Hispanic physicians in the U.S. NHMA is recognized as a resource at the national level and includes a network of Hispanic health professional associations and Hispanic medical societies across the United States to fulfil its mission to improve the health of all Americans.

We hope you will share our enthusiasm for the goals and commitment of this project. We thank you for all you do in service to your community.  For questions about the Scholarship Program please email nhhf@nhmafoundation.org
