While searching Masters programs in the Bay Area that are supportive of people like me, I stumbled upon this AMAZING scholarship opportunity available through Touro University California’s Joint Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies/Masters of Science in Public Health programs.
Last year, “Touro University California was awarded a $2.52 million grant through the Health Resource and Service Administration (HRSA) Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) program.”
Seven (7) students per class will be awarded $30,000 a year per year for the 3-year MSPAS/MPH program.
The goals of the program are:
- to increase the number of graduates practicing primary care
- enrollment and retention of full-time students from disadvantaged backgrounds including students who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups
- number of graduates working in medically underserved communities (MUCs)
