Healthline and Prevention Institute Stronger Scholarship

Healthline and Prevention Institute Stronger Scholarship

The Healthline and Prevention Institute Stronger Scholarship will award three $7,000 scholarships to a Black, a Hispanic/Latinx, and an Indigenous student reducing health inequities in their community.

The way communities are born, grow, live, work, and age determines their overall health and wellness. These factors are known as the social determinants of health Trusted Source, and they affect everything from access to healthy food and education to the quality of healthcare people receive. They set the stage for overall well-being. Unfortunately, because of structural inequalities, Black, Hispanic/Latinx, and Indigenous communities are less likely to have access to these necessities – and in turn, that continues to perpetuate economic and racial injustice.

This year, Healthline is dedicating its annual scholarship funds to three outstanding students committed to breaking down barriers to health for the Black, Indigenous, and Hispanic/Latinx communities.

• Be a student of color who identifies as Black, Indigenous, Hispanic, Latino/Latina, and/or Pacific Islander
• Current junior or senior in pursuit of an undergraduate degree (as of Fall 2021)
• Demonstrated involvement in the advancement of health equity by impacting an obstacle created by a social determinant of health. The social determinants of health are the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. They include education, housing, income, access to healthy food, physical environment, healthcare access, racism, and other forms of discrimination, among other community and social factors.
• There are a large variety of ways to make an impact, such as organizing a local garden to help families who would otherwise not have easy access to nutritious food and having a passion for expanding this work.
• This definition is intentionally broad to encourage applicants to creatively demonstrate the connection between their work and health equity in the essay portion of the application.
