Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation Scholarship
These scholarships are made possible by an annual grant from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation, based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Most of the scholarships awarded support undergraduate higher education, though the Foundation maintains a special interest in health education.

They must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate education in one of the School of Health Professions (SHP) programs, be enrolled full-time, have the minimum overall GPA of a 2.5 or higher and demonstrate financial need.
