Deadline: 2017 BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation Diversity Scholarship

2017 BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation Diversity Scholarship

Now in its fifth year, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee developed the diversity scholarship program to help address the need for a qualified and more inclusive health care workforce in Tennessee. The scholarships are presented in partnership with us, the Memphis Chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives. 

Three $10,000 scholarships will be awarded to three minority, undergraduate college students pursuing health care careers. The scholarships will be awarded in two payments of $5,000 each over the course of two consecutive semesters.

“These scholarships help outstanding minority students to achieve continued academic success,” said Ron Harris, Vice President of Workforce Diversity for BlueCross. “And in addition to that, this program serves to increase diversity in the health care field.”
