Little Rock, Ark. – The Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) is accepting applications for its Minority Health Workforce Diversity scholarship from now until Friday, Dec. 31.
Full or part-time college students of a minority race who plan to pursue a career in the field of health are encouraged to apply. Full-time scholarship recipients will be awarded $1,000 per academic year and part-time recipients, $500 per academic year.
The goal of the scholarship is to help increase diversity in the state’s healthcare workforce, which could have positive effects on both the health of minority populations and the quality of care in Arkansas.

The Arkansas Minority Health Commission works to assure that all minority Arkansans have equitable access to preventive health care and seeks ways to promote health and prevent diseases and conditions that are prevalent among minority populations.
