Most health professions grants are made to colleges and universities which use the funds to build programs that enroll diverse students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and produce graduates who make careers in primary care.
Each grant program has specific eligibility requirements, but generally, public or nonprofit private hospitals, accredited health professions schools, and other public or private nonprofit organizations that meet the requirements are eligible to apply.
