Funding is intended to to promote the pursuit of medical and health related careers for underserved students. Grants will be used to support career mentorship, academic enrichment, and step-by-step supplemental instruction.

2. Increasing graduation rates from both secondary and postsecondary education for economically disadvantaged and underrepresented minority students;
3. Providing supports needed to ensure successful completion of program deliverables; and
4. Ensuring successful attainment of professional careers in the health workforce.

The purpose of this funding is to support activities and approaches designed to contribute toward the reduction of barriers by promoting an increase in the number of students as described in (1) above.

Applicants should be currently operating a mentorship program for economically disadvantaged and underrepresented minority students pursuing or interested in pursuing careers in medicine or other health professions. Applicants should be experienced in, and currently providing, a broad spectrum of mentoring experiences for students at all academic levels (i.e., elementary, secondary, post-secondary, college and beyond). Applications should reflect a thorough knowledge and understanding of issues related to economically disadvantaged and underrepresented minorities in medicine and other health professions the underlying issues and the unique challenges these students must overcome if they are to be successful.

Proposals should be designed to provide community outreach, mentoring services, and organizational services across a wide spectrum of student/mentee academic levels. For further details, see pages 8-9 of the RFA listed in Supporting Documents below.
