Abstract

To increase the diversity of the health professions workforce and the number of providers working in underserved communities, HRSA makes grant funding to schools, which in turn provide scholarships and low-interest loans to disadvantaged students with financial need. Many of the students who benefit from these programs are from racial and ethnic minorities under-represented in the health workforce, including African Americans, Latinos, and American Indians and Alaska Natives groups that comprise 25 percent of the U.S. population, but less than 10 percent of many health professionals.
