4th Funding Cycle Development Award
Project Start Date: 10/1/2008
Project End Date: 6/30/2009
Original Award Amount: $50,000
Adjusted Award Amount: $46,363*
Project Goal Statement: Little is known regarding effective interventions for increasing the numbers of Latino and African-American (AA) health professionals; we hypothesize that AA and Latino middle school students' interest in the health professions will increase following a school-based intervention.
*In 2009 award amounts, based on the remaining budget, were adjusted to reflect the decline in endowment asset value due to the downturn in the economy.
