How to apply...
Application, a signed contract, and other information required (as listed in the application packet) are submitted to the administering Program Office.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
NHSC scholarship awards are very competitive; the Program anticipates more applicants for scholarship awards that there are funds available. The applications of individuals who meet the eligibility criteria are scored numerically. Where the application scores fall within the competitive range, the applicants will be invited to a personal interview. Applicants will be notified by mail of dates, times and locations of the interviews. Applicants who do not meet the eligibility criteria or whose scores do not fall within the competitive range will not be invited for an interview and will be notified of non-selection.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
