National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program

Support for students pursuing careers in primary care MD or DO, DDS or DMD, nurse practitioner, certified nurse midwife, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), or physician assistant.

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 NHSC-approved site in a medically underserved community.

For each year of financial support (up to four years), the student agrees to serve one year (minimum two years) at an NHSC-approved site in a high-need urban, rural, or frontier community across the nation.

Service begins upon graduation (and completion of primary care residency training for doctors and dentists). The NHSC helps scholars find a practice site that's right for them. When in service, scholars earn a market-rate salary, paid by the employing facility.
