Path to True Success Scholarship Application

As a first-generation student, navigating the college process can be difficult, especially when trying to determine how to pay for one’s education. To support students whose future goals are to serve their community, True Health will offer four (4) first-generation college students a one-thousand-dollar ($1,000) scholarship to support their academic goals. The Path to True Success Scholarship is open to all high school seniors and undergraduate students who are planning to pursue or who are currently pursuing a degree and career in the public service field.

While there are many individuals working in public health, True Health’s intent is to ensure individuals are aware of the value of Federally Qualified Health Centers and similar safety net resources within communities that face socio-economic barriers. *Additional funding support will be solicited from external donors which may increase the scholarship award amount for each recipient.

Application submission deadline is May 27, 2022
