The EmPOWERED Scholars program awards scholarships to enrolled undergraduate students who volunteer in their communities to use toward their education expenses. Scholars give their time to community-based organizations, student-led organizations and other groups that address food insecurity, safe housing, job opportunities, access to health care and other conditions that can result in health disparities.
The program is a college scholarship opportunity for undergraduate college students who are working to improve the social determinants of health in their communities through volunteer work, student-led organizations and more. This year, five undergraduate students will each be awarded a $5,000 scholarship, and the scholarship will be dispersed directly to the students to use towards their education expenses. Applications are accepted July 1st – August 15th. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
