Johnson & Johnson Scholarship for Pre-PA Students

Physician Assistant Foundation
Type Scholarship
Amount -


Limited access to a health professional who is representative of a patient’s cultural or linguistic background is associated with poor health outcomes. According to the Center for American Progress, more than 84,000 lives could be saved annually if the healthcare disparity gap were closed. In recognition of this issue, the Physician Assistant Foundation established a scholarship for underrepresented minority pre-PA students, with the goal of increasing diversity in the physician assistant workforce and alleviating disparities in access to healthcare among underserved populations. This scholarship program is made possible by a generous contribution to the Foundation from Johnson & Johnson.
