National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program
Students pursuing a career in primary health care are eligible to receive funding for their education in exchange for practicing in rural, urban, and frontier communities in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) with limited access to care, upon graduation and licensure.
Students can apply to the Scholarship Program if they are committed to primary care and accepted to or enrolled in a fully accredited training program for
- Physicians (MD or DO)
- Nurse Practitioners
- Certified Nurse-Midwives
- Physician Assistants
The scholarship pays tuition, fees, other educational costs, and provides a living stipend in return for a commitment to work at least 2 years at an approved outpatient facility in a medically underserved community. The scholarship can be awarded for as many as 4 years. With each year (or partial year) of support beyond the first year, the student agrees to provide one additional year of service, with a maximum of four years.
