The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) released the 2020 Application and Program Guidance for the NHSC Scholarship Program. The application deadline has been extended to Friday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m.
The NHSC Scholarship Program provides scholarships to health profession students pursuing careers as primary care providers in exchange for their commitment to serve in high-need, underserved communities. The scholarship includes tax-free payment of tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a taxable monthly living stipend.
After completion of graduation/training, recipients fulfill their service commitment at one of more than 20,000 NHSC-approved sites throughout the nation and its territories. Each scholar serves for a minimum of two years and receives one year of financial support (up to four years) for each year of service at an NHSC-approved site found on the Health Workforce Connector.
