If nothing else, 2020 has shown just how important health care workers and public health experts are. So, in an effort to show their support, TikTok is donating $10 million to 10 colleges serving underrepresented students.
The video social network website made the announcement Wednesday, saying that each school would receive $1 million to support both undergraduate and graduate scholarships for students pursuing careers in medicine, public health or other health-related fields.
The ten schools benefiting are Xavier University of Louisiana, Tougaloo College, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina A&T University, South Carolina State University, Laredo College, University of South Dakota, Florida A&M University, Delaware State University and Virginia Union University.
In a statement, TikTok said the gifts would help “ensure the success of future Black, Latinx, and Indigenous health heroes.”
