Health Careers Program

Dignity Health Scholars

Dignity Health believes in the excellence and importance of Spelman College and its mission to provide high-quality education to women of color.  To demonstrate its support, Dignity Health is in its third year partnership with Spelman’s Health Careers Program. 

The financial support provided will be used to fund a branded initiative that will:  attract, engage and prepare Spelman students, (especially those from California, Arizona and Nevada) for careers in health, allied health and healthcare administration; enhance their exposure to the many career options in these fields; and expand current opportunities to engage with executives and leading professionals within the health care industry.

The funds are used for scholarships, internships, and international service trips.  Additionally, some funds are to provide infrastructure support for the campus community to engage with Dignity Health representatives at Research Day.
