The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program provides 185 awards for up to 4 years to health professions students, who will have to do service. The scholarship consists of payment for tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly support stipend. In return, students agree to provide one year of service in a National Health Service Corps approved site in the Health Professional Shortage area to which they are assigned for each school year or partial school year of scholarship support received, with a minimum 2-year service commitment and a maximum 8-year commitment. Service obligation can be completed full-time or part-time.
