The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is now accepting applications for their 2018 scholarship program. Full-time PA students interested in practicing in primary care are encouraged to apply.
For each year of financial support given, scholarship recipients agree to serve one year at an NHSC-approved site in a medically underserved community. The scholarship will cover education costs including tuition, fees, and a living stipend, and recipients will be paid a salary by their assigned site when their employment begins.
An informational webinar for interested students will be held Thursday, April 12, at 3:00 p.m. ET. More information about the scholarship and the webinar is available on the NHSC website.
Applications are due by 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 10.
