The health care industry is changing. That change not only brings increased access to insurance for populations never covered before but also a greater need for a qualified, diverse workforce to deliver that care.
In 2012, we established a scholarship to address this need for more inclusion in the health care setting. The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust, in collaboration with the Memphis chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives, offers a $10,000 (awarded in two payments of $5,000 each over the course of two consecutive semesters) college scholarship to three Tennessee minority students who wish to pursue careers in the field of health care.
Applications for the 2015 scholarships are due Feb. 28, 2015. Learn more about the scholarships.
