The Woody Brittain – Education Is the Equalizer Scholarship recognizes and cultivates outstanding young African-American students interested in science, technology and healthcare through a unique scholarship and mentoring program.
African-American students in the 12th grade.
Winners of this prestigious scholarship can opt to be a partner to a mentee/mentor relationship while in college as well as have exposure to the unique DaVita "Village" culture that has been studied by Harvard Business School and profiled in numerous publications.
Ideally, it is our hope that recipients of this scholarship award may also assist and mentor future Woody Brittain award recipients to build a growing network and lasting legacy of education, personal and professional growth, and service to the community.
