Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will give $650,000 in scholarships to disadvantaged medical students, thanks to a federal grant.
The grant is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services through the Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students program, according to a news release from the office of U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas.
The program promotes diversity in the health care field by assisting full-time students with financial need enrolled in health professions and nursing programs.
Participating schools are responsible for choosing scholarship recipients, determining need and providing scholarships that do not exceed the allowable costs. Priority consideration will be given to applicants that work to place graduates in medically underserved communities.
