Dr. Paul and Erin Roth Endowed Scholarship for Health Equity

The purpose of the Dr. Paul and Erin Roth Endowed Scholarship for Health Equity is to increase educational and health equity in New Mexico by providing full tuition scholarships to New Mexican students pursuing M.D., Physician Assistant, Advanced Practice Nursing or Pharmacist Clinician degrees or tracks at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center who commit to practicing in the state of New Mexico at the end of their clinical training. These scholarships will ensure no person is disadvantaged from achieving their potential because of socio-economic status, that health care providers reflect the communities they serve, and subsequently are more aware of the needs in our community, including those communities with health disparities. The Roth scholarship will be combined with legislatively appropriated scholarship funds from the State of New Mexico where applicable to further enhance the impact for the students.
