Health Resources & Services Administration Nurse Corps scholarships

As a student accepted or enrolled in a diploma, associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree nursing program, you can receive funding for tuition, fees, and other educational costs.

In exchange, you must work at an eligible facility with a critical shortage of nurses—a Critical Shortage Facility (CSF)—upon graduation.

Award

We give funding preference depending on your financial need.

  • a U.S. citizen (born or naturalized), a national, or a lawful permanent resident;

  • free from any federal judgment liens;
