The NHSC Scholarship Program participants agree to provide a one year service commitment in an underserved community for each year of scholarship support received. There is a two year minimum service commitment and participants can receive a maximum of four years of support.

NHSC Scholarship Program is 50 years old!
As the inaugural National Health Service Corps program, the Scholarship Program was established in 1970 as part of the Emergency Health Personnel Act Amendments. First implemented to address the lack of medical access in rural communities, the program has grown to more than 2,500 current students or residents in the 2021 award pipeline preparing to serve in underserved communities across the nation.
