Nurse Corps Scholarship: Nursing students who meet the requirements can apply for the Nurse Corps Scholarship Program. The scholarship will cover your tuition, fees, and other educational costs if you are accepted. When you graduate, you labor at a Critical Shortage Facility in exchange.

Nurse Corps Scholarship

This scholarship is very important because many Americans lack access to essential medical care.

This covers examinations, preventative screenings, and vaccinations. This occurs when communities lack enough healthcare professionals.

In the United States, there is still a demand for nurses. These problems are addressed in part by the Nurse Corps Scholarship Program.

Scholarship Eligibility Criteria

You qualify if you meet the following requirements:

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

2. Have been accepted into or are currently enrolled in a nursing degree program at a U.S.-accredited nursing school;

3. Will start classes no later than September 30; and

4. Have no outstanding federal judgment liens.

5. Do not now have a service obligation;

6. Do not have any outstanding federal debts

Note: We give funding preference to those who need the most help financially.
