Generational Health Scholarship

In June 2020, racism was declared a Public Health Crisis in the City of Boston, and the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) along with other City departments were charged with executing eight strategies to combat the root causes of structural racism. The BPHC solicited community input on how to implement these strategies. Several themes emerged, all aimed at closing racial health disparity and inequity gaps for all Boston residents

The Generational Health Scholarship will serve as dedicated support for Boston-area students looking to enter critical roles such as public health practitioner, medical doctor, engineer, health administrator, psychiatrist, dentist, counselor, physical therapist, information technology manager, nurse, data scientist, software developer, social worker, health education specialist, and more to address critical workforce shortages, increase representation in key industries, create generational wealth, improve access to health services, and to build a more equitable and inclusive Boston.
