A collaboration between Bank of America and EAB

As part of its $1.25 billion commitment to support communities of color, Bank of America is investing to promote the social and economic mobility of Hispanic adults through the Progresando Initiative. Progresando provides an array of support, including funds for paid internships and scholarships as well as consulting, market research, and marketing to ensure programs are set up to drive student success and robust employment outcomes. Our collective goal is to advance the number and impact of Hispanic learners who seek to serve their communities in the critical arena of healthcare.
