Health Careers Opportunity Program, Centers of Excellence, Pathways to Health Professions and Minority Faculty Fellowship grants are made to schools and health professions training programs to increase diversity within the health fields. The grants provide disadvantaged and under-represented minority students and faculty opportunities to enhance their academic skills and obtain the support needed to graduate from health professions schools or faculty development programs. HRSA also makes grants to health professions training programs to make scholarships, loans and loan repayments for disadvantaged students and faculty.
