Go Red Por Tu Corazón

During Hispanic Heritage Month, the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón movement and its national sponsor, Macy’s, are launching the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund nationally. The scholarship directly addresses important gaps in treatment that can lead to heart health disparities among Hispanic women. Cue huge corporation reaching out to the Latino community. Unlike other businesses, this is actually a good opportunity.

The scholarship program places medical and nursing school within the reach of deserving racial and ethnic female candidates and increases cultural competence in the healthcare workforce. This year, the Go Red™ Multicultural Scholarship Fund will award 16 scholarships of $2,500 each ($40,000 total) to qualifying applicants. Opportunity alert! Well I already said it but hey $2,500 for one person is a lot money...especially in medical or nursing school. It can most likely purchase one or two books -_-.

Anyways, for more information and to request an application, visit GoRedCorazon.org/GoRedScholarshipDeadline for entry is November 30, 2011.
