College Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors are encouraged to apply for the American Heart Association EmPOWERED to Serve Scholars Program by January 20, 2020. The program is geared towards college students who are actively addressing social determinants of health such as food insecurity, safe housing, job opportunities and access to health care.
Students must apply by submitting a resume, letter of recommendation, and other materials. This includes a personal 60-second video about what health equity means to the student and how they’ve made a sustainable, positive impact on a community’s health. EmPOWERED to Serve Scholars who are selected for the program will be announced April 1, 2020!
