Scholarship

Science Sistas, Inc. provides scholarships to applicants of professional school; however, currently, this scholarship is only open to students with an active professional application, but we hope to expand our ability to provide for students in the upcoming application cycles.​

The awards are intended to help students that identify as Black, Indigenous, POC who are applying or have applied in the current cycle to an accredited professional healthcare institution. Applicants may only submit an application in ONE category. 

 

Scholarship recipients will be selected based on a combination of academic achievements, financial need, active participation in extracurricular and/or community service activities, written communication skills demonstrated in the required essays, and recommendation letters.
