The Howell Foundation has awarded $725,225 and funded 252 women's health research scholarships. The research scholarships have ranged from the study of ovarian, breast and cervical cancers, to heart disease, the body's immune system, and pregnancy.

A good portion of the success of the program is that each student has a mentor professor who specifically guides the student.  The mentor catapults the student's knowledge and skills in ways that couldn't be done otherwise.

The students who are selected for scholarships are without exception, tops in their class. It is inspirational to see their passion and their growth. After all, they are the embodiment of the promise of "Keeping the Women We Love Healthy."
