National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship

In 2004, NHHF established the National Hispanic Health Professional Student Scholarship program and its first Gala in New York City for medical, nursing, dental, public health, and pharmacy and health policy students with outstanding academic records, leadership, and who are committed to serving Hispanics. The following year, we invited the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, Hispanic Dental Association, Latino Caucus of American Public Health Association, the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, NYU and an honorary committee of New York elected officials, to help us present our first ten scholarships. In 2007, NHHF started its partnership with the United Health Foundation in this unique national effort and the following year, a second annual Gala in California. By January 2019, NHHF has awarded $1,034,000 to 266 awardees.

Applicants are not required to be Hispanic; an affinity for the health of Hispanic communities and an interest in participating in NHHF Scholars Alumni activities is required.
