The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation established the Barbara Jordan Health Policy Scholars Program at Howard University to honor the legacy of  Barbara Jordan by creating opportunities for minority students in health policy and eventually, increasing the numbers of minority health policy professionals. As a member of the United States Congress and the Texas State Legislature, Barbara Jordan's distinguished career was typified by her tireless advocacy of behalf of vulnerable populations. She brought this passion to her work, inspiring others to become involved in addressing challenging health policy issues. 

The program continues Barbara Jordan's commitment by annually providing 15 talented minority college students the opportunity to work in a congressional office with health policy responsibilities.  The Barbara Jordan Scholars will gain exposure to health policy issues and firsthand understanding of how the federal government works.  Seminars, lectures, and field trips will augment the work experiences of the Scholars.
