    National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program Application Is Now Open!

    Posted By on March 14, 2014

    Aloha from NHHSP!

    For those applicants who applied to the Native Hawaiian Health Scholarship Program (NHHSP), you may also want to apply to the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) if  you fall into the following training programs listed below.   We highly recommend that you do so.  Our programs are similiar in that NHHSP and NHSC pays tuition, fees, other educational cost, and provides a living stipend in return for a commitment to work at least 2 years at an approved facility in a medically needy community.

    Note: Whereas, the NHSC Scholarship payments other than the living stipend are federal income tax-free, this is not the case for NHHSP.  All NHHSP Scholarship payments are not federal income tax-free!

    You can apply to the National Health Service Corp Scholarship Program if you are committed to primary care and accepted to or enrolled in a fully accredited training program for:

    • · Physicians (MD or DO)
    • · Dentists
    • · Nurse Practitioners
    • · Certified Nurse-Midwives
    • · Physician Assistants

    The NHSC 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.

    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 among the hundreds of NHSC-approved sites in medically underserved urban, rural and frontier communities across the U.S. When in service, scholars earn a market-rate salary, paid by the employing facility.

    The Scholarship Program accepts applications once each year. Applicants chosen to receive the scholarship are notified no later than September 30.
