The Nurse Corps Scholarship Program (NCSP) awards funds to students enrolled in a diploma, associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree nursing program in exchange for their commitment to serve in high-need, underserved communities. Scholarship support includes payment of tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly living stipend.

After completion of graduation/training, recipients can fulfill their service commitment at a number of approved health care facilities currently experiencing a critical shortage of nurses. Each scholar serves for a minimum of two years and receives one year of financial support (up to four years) for each additional year of service.

All awards are subject to federal taxes. Learn more on how the NCSP award is taxed by visiting our FAQs or watching our helpful NCSP tax withholding webinar.

Before You Apply

Before you apply, read the annually updated Application and Program Guidance. Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the Nurse Corps contract, which outlines the requirement for fulfilling your minimum two years of service at an eligible critical shortage facility.
