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 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 care profession, along with significant community involvement. The scholarship is designated for students enrolled in their final year of a graduate management program.

LAHP currently offers its scholarship to the following programs:

  • Tulane Health Systems Management - Master of Health Administration
  • LSU School of Public Health - Master of Health Policy and Systems Management
  • LSU School of Nursing - Master of Advanced Public/Community Health Nursing
  • UNO Health Care Management - M.S. or Executive Master of Health Care Management
  • UNO Business Administration - M.S. or Executive Master in Business Administration

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.
