The National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program (NHSC SP) awards scholarships to students pursuing eligible primary care health professions training.
In return, scholars commit to provide primary care health services in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).
You commit to a minimum two years of full-time service in exchange for a full year of scholarship support.
You must serve at an NHSC-approved site in a HPSA. The total number of years you serve will depend on the number of school years of NHSC SP support you received. (This cannot exceed four school years.)
You will join thousands of current and former NHSC clinicians who provide primary healthcare services to communities in need.
We provide financial support for full-time enrollment in an eligible primary care health professions degree training program for up to four school years:
Note: You will not receive financial support during postgraduate training.
You may be eligible to apply to the NHSC Loan Repayment Program (NHSC LRP) once you complete your NHSC SP service commitment.
