Scholarship Description: For racially and ethnically diverse women in at-risk communities, the need for passionate, strong voices in healthcare is critical. That’s because Hispanic women are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than non-Hispanics. And African American women have almost twice the risk of stroke than Caucasians. Yet, there’s a shortage of diversity in female nurses and doctors. Go Red For Women is committed to reversing those trends. That’s why we invite women to apply for one of the 16 scholarships of $2,500 that will be awarded through the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund. Now in its fourth year in 2013-2014, the scholarship aims to help close the gaps in both treatment and access to a more affordable education for women of diverse backgrounds. We believe the best way to do this is to ensure that all Americans have an opportunity to work with healthcare providers that truly understand the cultural differences and traditions that impact lifestyle and attitudes toward heart health.
