United Health Foundation Diversity in Health Care Scholarship 

Now in its second year, the United Health Foundation’s Diversity in Health Care Scholarship supports underrepresented health professionals in obtaining additional certifications or degrees in medicine, nursing, midwifery, mental health and other specialties to advance their careers.  

This program is open to current or former health professionals and will award 325 scholarships of $3,200 to students from historically underrepresented populations who are seeking to advance their clinical skills. To check your eligibility, you can review the lists of acceptable degree programs and eligible current or active licenses and certificates. Please note that physicians who are seeking additional certifications or degrees are not eligible. 

You must currently hold an active license/certificate to practice in a clinical health career, and plan to enroll in full-time or part-time study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, vocational-technical or graduate school, starting in Fall 2024.   

The United Health Foundation’s Diversity in Health Care Scholarship is open to students from historically underrepresented communities, including those who identify as Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander.   

“I’m currently trying to get my Doctor of Nursing practice in midwifery… I want to help individuals who feel like they are not being represented in the medical field,” says Tuyet Nhu Truong, a registered nurse who is using her scholarship to work toward becoming a certified nurse midwife with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice.

Wells Fargo Scholarship for People With Disabilities 

According to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, Americans with disabilities face an uphill battle when it comes to joining the workforce. While nearly 77% of working-age people (ages 16-64) without disabilities are currently employed, less than 40% of those with disabilities are active in the workforce. Educational opportunities can help close that gap, that’s why Wells Fargo is proud to offer the Wells Fargo Scholarship Program for People with Disabilities. This program is geared specifically toward part-time and full-time college students with disabilities, helping them pursue the education or training they need to succeed in their chosen career path.  

In partnership with Scholarship America, Wells Fargo has provided more than $1 million to help 228 scholarship recipients with disabilities achieve their educational goals. In 2024, the Wells Fargo Scholarship for Program for People with Disabilities will once again provide awards of up to $2,500 to qualifying full-time students, renewable up to three years. Awards of up to $1,250 are available to qualifying part-time students and are renewable up to seven years, or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.  

“I believe programs like this pushed me to use my voice to advocate for myself and others,” said Gloria Li, a 2019 University of Florida graduate with Tourette’s syndrome, who received the Wells Fargo Scholarship for People with Disabilities for two years. “I am truly grateful for scholarship programs like Wells Fargo’s because it sends the message that people with disabilities have potential that transcends the limitations they were born with and that we deserve a voice and representation in society.”
