Brief Program Summary: This program provides scholarships, internships and mentorships for
rising college juniors and seniors in specified disciplines. The program fosters long term
relationships with Anthem’s business units and Foundation, students and participating academic
institutions. By recruiting promising minority students, the program increases students’ interest
in Anthem and ultimately enlarges the pool of prospective candidates available to the company
for its future workforce. The program’s goal is to reduce financial barriers as well as arm college
graduates with experience in their majors to allow them to rise to the top of the crop. A strong
diversity internship program provides employers the opportunity to grab these rising stars early
on and cultivate the best employees for their companies.
Success Metrics: 14 scholars receive an annual, $5000 scholarship which is renewable for two
years. These same scholars are placed in internships at Anthem for two years, with potential job
placement at Anthem upon graduation.
