    • 2016 Application and Program Guidance (PDF – 433 KB) has the detailed information you need to apply. Please read carefully before you start your Scholarship Program application.

    You can apply to the Scholarship Program if you are committed to primary care and accepted to or enrolled in an accredited U.S. school in one of the following primary care disciplines:

    • Dentists
    • Nurse Practitioners (post graduate degree with clinical practice focus)

    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.
