The Humana Foundation Awards Scholarships to 237 Children of Humana Employees

 

The Humana Foundation is committed to post-secondary attainment not only for the communities we invest in, but also for our associates and their children.  We believe post-secondary attainment is an important social determinant of health and important that can help improve opportunity, financial security and ultimately play a part in advancing health equity for all.  To help achieve this, The Humana Foundation awards scholarships to the children of Humana employees pursuing undergraduate degrees each year. This yearly program helps ensure students receive a college education, creating better financial outcomes for themselves and their families. This year, Grace Adams, daughter of Humana Associate Mike Adams, received a scholarship from The Humana Foundation for the first time. Humana Foundation CEO Walter Woods caught up with them at a graduation event at Grace’s school and Mike had the following to say, “We have always impressed upon our kids the value of hard work and the importance of postsecondary education. Going to college is an incredible investment in yourself, but one that can easily put you at a financial disadvantage early in your career. We are extremely appreciative of The Humana Foundation’s support of Humana employees whose children are pursuing a higher education and are honored that our daughter, Grace Adams, was chosen to receive a scholarship. With the foundation’s assistance, Grace will be able to focus on her classes and participate in extracurricular study, civic, and social opportunities that might have otherwise been less possible due to a need to earn funds for school. This scholarship is also a great recognition of the effort she put in to high school, and will help provide motivation for her to maintain that energy throughout college.”  Grace added to what her father said, “The Humana Foundation Scholarship will play a key role in helping me further my education to achieve my goals and dreams. The scholarship will allow me to focus my time on academics because it relieves the significant stress of figuring out how to pay for my education. I am very honored and proud to have been selected to receive this scholarship.” 

In 2021, The Foundation awarded a total of $708,000 in scholarships to 237 students, including 75 new recipients and 162 renewals.  Since the program began in 2001, the Foundation has awarded nearly $14 million to the children of Humana employees. 

We know this year has presented a lot of challenges in education and that learning in an online environment is a very different experience than what students expected when they thought about going to college.  We commend the adaptability and resilience we’ve seen in those who have prioritized their education during these strange times and the sacrifices they’ve made to keep each other safe. A special congratulations to our graduates. We can’t wait to see the great work you’ll do in the world and how you’ll shape the future for good.

Applications will be available again in early 2022.

Congratulations to the 2021 Humana Foundation scholarship recipients! You have persevered during a particular challenging year and we couldn’t be more proud!
