The scholarship pays tuition, fees, and other educational costs, and provides a living stipend in return for a commitment to work at least 2 years at an NHSC-approved site in a medically underserved community.
For each year of financial support (up to four years), the student agrees to serve one year (minimum two years) at an NHSC-approved site in a high-need urban, rural, or frontier community across the nation.
Service begins upon graduation. 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.
Scholarship payments, other than the living stipend, are free from federal income tax.
