DeHayes Multicultural Scholarship

Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Columbia University Medical Center

Our office currently hosts the FREE Pre-Health summer internship opportunities geared towards students that identifies with a group that is racially/ethnically underrepresented in the health professions and comes from an economically or educationally disadvantaged background. Ultimately, the goal of the programs is to provide students with enriching and challenging coursework and networking opportunities in order to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools.

 This is a contribution to provide scholarship information for Native students, to encourage and promote postsecondary education for Native students, to promote networking opportunities for Native Americans, and to raise awareness and appreciation for the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. I share this resource with the hope that you would also seek compassion about young people who need guidance and support toward finding the quality of life.
