Nursing Scholarship Program - #93.303

Service-obligated scholarships are awarded to full-time and part-time students of nursing. Scholarships pay tuition and required fees to the school, a monthly stipend to students and a single annual payment to the student to assist with other reasonable educational expenses. Reasonable expenses include books, supplies, equipment, uniforms, travel, for the provision of clinical service, etc. The program requires a one year of service with a minimum 2-year service commitment post graduation. A maximum of four years of educational support may be awarded. Service obligation must be fulfilled at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. These facilities currently include Indian Health Service facilities, Native Hawaiian Health Centers, hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers, rural health clinics, nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospice programs, State or local Public Health Departments, and ambulatory surgical centers.

The applicant must submit an enrollment/acceptance letter from the school or university and proof of US citizenship at the time of application. Applicants must also provide documentation of Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The Department of Education's Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is also required. Applicants should review the individual HRSA funding opportunity announcement issued under this CFDA program for any required proof or certifications which must be submitted prior to or simultaneous with submission of an application package. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-87.

Funding preference is defined as the funding of a specified category of group of approved applicants ahead of other categories or groups of approved applicants. As provided in the amendment in section 846(e) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, a funding preference is given to eligible applicants with the greatest financial need. NSP will use the Department of Education's Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to evaluate financial need.
