Applicants must be committed to quality Health Science Pathway Programs.

Grant funds will be used to: (1) attend the Health Science Educators’ Institute with a team of dedicated stakeholders representing grades seven through fourteen and (2) select up to five health science pathway components for either development or enhancement of a pathway.
