Nurse Corps Scholarship Program
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration has a Nurse Corps Scholarship Program.
You must be enrolled or admitted to an accredited nursing program in order to be eligible.
In addition, there is a requirement for a 2-year full-time commitment at an eligible health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. Scholarships are awarded competitively and consist of payment for tuition, fees, other reasonable costs and a monthly support stipend.
Funding preference goes to undergraduate applicants who have a zero EFC (Expected Family Contribution).
