About the scholarships
Supporting our Black communities is as much a moral imperative as a requirement of our daily pursuit of educating and empowering our overlooked, disenfranchised communities. This is why Bay Area Medical Academy is offering full Medical Assistant with Phlebotomy scholarships* to African American students residing anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. These scholarships are made possible through our non-profit arm, STEP into a Job!
*Part of the funding will be provided through a student Federal Pell Grant. Conditions apply.
Black Lives Matter
Bay Area Medical Academy stands in solidarity with the Black community because we know that society cannot be elevated until all people are lifted and have equitable access to political, educational, and vocational resources. We stand in solidarity because everyone in this country should be able to live free of fear. We believe human decency, kindness and respect are the rights of every human being. These things should not be privileges for some but rights afforded to all.
