To be eligible for the NURSE Corps Scholarship Program, applicants must: be a U.S. citizen (born or naturalized), a national, or a lawful permanent resident; be an accepted or enrolled student in a nursing degree program at a United States accredited school of nursing; begin classes no later than September 30; not have any federal judgment liens; not have an existing service commitment; and not be overdue on a federal debt. Preference is given to those who need the most help financially.
If you receive an award, you’ll get a monthly stipend, and you'll get your tuition, eligible fees and reasonable costs (includes books, clinical supplies/instruments, and uniforms) paid for. There continues to be a need for nurses throughout the United States. The Nurse Corps Scholarship Program helps address that issue. The purpose of the Nurse Corps Scholarship Program (Nurse Corps SP) is to provide scholarships to nursing students in exchange for a minimum two-year, full-time service commitment (or part-time equivalent), at an eligible health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses.
