The American Red Cross is offering scholarships for women of color who are training for careers in health care as part of its "Go Red for Women" campaign.
The Go Red Multicultural Scholarship fund, which is sponsored by Macy’s, will provide 16 awards of $2,500 for women of color pursuing college or graduate-school degrees in such health-care fields as medicine or nursing, according to a press release.
Candidates, who must be African-American, Hispanic or Asian women, must complete an application, personal essay and submit two letters of recommendation. Online applications are available through Dec. 31, which is the submission deadline. For more information, visit https://www.goredforwomen.org/.
