Thank you for signing up to be notified about the 2013 the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program application cycle. We are happy to report that effective March 21, 2013 (today), the 2013 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program application cycle is now open! The application cycle will remain open through May 14, 2013. The Application and Program Guidance can be found on the NHSC Website and contains all of the program requirements and details.
Highlights of 2013 NHSC Scholarship Program:
The NHSC Scholarship Program removes the burden of overwhelming educational debt, allowing health professions students to pursue their passion for primary care and serving the underserved.
For each year of financial support (up to four years) a Scholarship recipient serves one year (minimum two years) in an NHSC-approved site in high-need urban, rural, and frontier communities across the nation.
Scholarship support includes tax-free payment of tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly living stipend (taxable).
All students applying to the program must be a U.S. citizen or national and enrolled or accepted in an eligible degree program at a U.S. accredited school in Medicine: MD or DO; Dentistry: DMD or DDS; Nurse Practitioner (Adult, Family, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Psychiatric, or Women’s health); Certified Nurse-Midwife; and Physician Assistant.
As in previous years, the National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program will be competitive. If there are more qualified applicants than available funding, the NHSC will continue to prioritize applicants who are from a disadvantaged background and applicants who demonstrate a commitment to continuing to serve communities of need after their service to the NHSC is complete.
