New Scholarship for UNM OT Students Targets Recruitment of Rural New Mexicans and COTAs: Who Qualifies and How to Apply
1.0 hours. The UNM OT Graduate Program was recently awarded a $3.25 million grant to provide scholarships to students over the next five years. The funding was secured from the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students mechanism that aims to diversify the health care workforce. This is enacted by providing scholarships to students from medically underserved communities, underrepresented minority groups, and those from environmentally disadvantaged backgrounds. We will introduce the opportunity, how to apply, and the criteria for application. Qualifying for the scholarship requires students to demonstrate an economic need or having come from an environmentally disadvantaged background.
