The Native Hawaiian Health Scholarship Program’s (NHHSP) applications process for the 2014-2015 scholarship year is currently closed. However, we highly recommend scholars who are interested in applying for next year (2015-2016) should download and read the 2014-2015 Application & Program Guidance (APG) .PDF. The APG contains everything you need to know about the benefits, requirements, and obligations that come with a Native Hawaiian Health Scholarship award, and by studying the APG, those interested in the NHHSP will be preparing themselves to be as competitive as possible when the 2015-2016 Application season opens in December of 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.

While a completed FAFSA is not required to apply for a Native Hawaiian Health Scholarship Program (NHHSP) scholarship, NHHSP staff encourages all students to complete a FAFSA. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step toward getting financial aid for college, career school, or graduate school. The FAFSA not only gives you access to the $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds that the federal government has available, but many states, schools, and private scholarships require you to submit the FAFSA before they will consider you for any financial aid they offer.
Whether you’re filling out the FAFSA for yourself, helping your child, or are in a position to help others fill out the FAFSA, we have the resources for you.
The FAFSA is free and only takes an average of only 23 minutes to complete. Get started at www.FAFSA.gov.
For information and tips on completing the FAFSA, visit StudentAid.gov/fafsa.
