With your support, we can continue to provide recurring academic scholarships to outstanding students dedicated to improving Hispanic health. Together we can uplift the next generation of Hispanic health professionals.

NHHF Scholarship Winners

One of the greatest barriers that we face in health equity is underrepresentation. Hispanics and Latinos are disproportionately underrepresented in the fields of healthcare and medicine, making up only 5.3% of 2018-19 medical school graduates. As of 2018, only 5.8% of doctors were Hispanic.

To address this hurdle, NHHF is proud to present our Hispanic Health Professional Student scholarship to over a dozen students each year who are studying to join the healthcare field and work in underserved communities. Because 24% of medical school matriculants of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin had over $25,000 in education debt even before they begin medical school, we know how important this is to empower the next generation of leaders.
