The Gil Dupré Graduate Student Scholarship

The Louisiana Association of Health Plans is pleased to sponsor the Gil Dupré Graduate Student Scholarship. LAHP established this scholarship as a community service to promote careers in the health insurance and health benefits industry. One or more scholarships ranging from $2,500 - $10,000 are awarded annually to Louisiana students who have demonstrated strong promise of leadership in the health benefits industry, along with significant community involvement. The scholarship is designated for students enrolled in their final year of an MBA, Health Care Administration, Health Care Management or similar graduate management program.

The award is named for LAHP's founder and long-time chief executive officer who retired in 2012 after a 41-year-career in the health benefits industry.
