      Diversity encompasses any and all individuals with a range of different characteristics, including but not limited to: age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, country of origin, culture, language, religion, spiritual beliefs, legal status, health history, and disability. Individuals with underrepresented characteristics and identities face logistical, social, and historical pressures that impact their professional and personal lives.

    2. Individuals whose opportunities to pursue the genetic counseling profession would be expanded by this financial assistance.
