For generations, Healthcare workers have been the silent heroes to our society committing their lives and careers to keep us safe and healthy. Now more than ever, this commitment to a greater cause is a reminder of how important Healthcare workers are to all of us. These brave and committed members of our community are our neighbors, our friends, and our relatives and represent all ranges of our society. To honor these incredible professionals, For A Bright Future is proud to announce the launch of the inaugural Healthcare Scholarship. The scholarship is aimed to support and encourage exceptional students to pursue careers in direct healthcare roles. The selection committee is co-chaired by Louis Hernandez Jr., Founder, and Chairman of the Board, and Dr. Daniel Diver, Former Chief of Cardiology of St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT, and advisor to Black Dragon Capital.
We help underrepresented students with outstanding achievement and the drive to pursue higher education in select fields by equipping them with the tools to tackle complex social and economic issues affecting their communities.
For A Bright Future provides up to $10,000 in scholarships annually. Students have the opportunity to receive one $2,500 scholarship a year. They are granted upon assessment of need and university selection.
Applicants must be underrepresented minority students who demonstrate high performance and self-drive as evidenced by outstanding achievement in school and community or work-related activities.
