2018 Champion of Diversity Scholarship

 

The Manhattan Staten Island Area Health Education Center (MSI AHEC) works with students from medically under-served communities, by providing them with opportunities for career exploration and development in the numerous fields of health care. Since 2004, MSI AHEC has had the privilege of witnessing diverse and promising students explore and pursue their educational and career aspirations.

In the spirit of recognizing their hard work, and the desire to alleviate all too common barriers and challenges these students face, MSI AHEC is proud to continue its tradition of presenting a Champions Of Diversity Scholarship to three students at various levels of their educational pursuit – health professions, college and high school. This scholarship is in the amount of $500.00 each and will be awarded via check to the selected students, at the Reception. The scholarship is awarded to students that have consistently exemplified the mission of MSI AHEC: working towards decreasing health disparities while aggressively pursuing a career in the healthcare workforce. These students have progressively shown growth and commitment through their participation in AHEC programs as well as through their active community leadership and involvement. These students have also demonstrated clear commitment to working with under-served communities.
