    I didn't hear in 2015 until June 23 if that helps. I still haven't heard back from my renewal application. HRSA score is 17.

    Still waiting to hear back. First time applicant.

    Question tho - as a renewal applicant, you have to renew your application every year after the initial offer is made? if they decide to say no, are you then responsible for paying back the year the gave u money for??

    Seems confusing as to why you need to renew an application. Is it just to check good standing

    For each new reward amount, yes, you have to renew your application. For instance, after my 2-year initial term and receiving 50k, I have had to reapply for the first annual 20k renewal. The process isn't as daunting, but it isn't all that particularly clear how it works. They have limited funding, obviously. So what happens if your site score drops during your initial 2-years? Does that mean you're out of luck? or is it pretty much a rubber stamp once you are in the program? I didn't get any answers when I spoke to a representative over the phone. My 2-year service term is over now, and I haven't heard anything back from the NHSC after putting in a renewal application in February.

    You guys need to be more specific about which application you're talking about.

    If you are applying to be a SCHOLAR, no, you do not need to renew your application every year. It is assumed that you get the full four years (or however many more years you have left of school).

    If you applying for LOAN REPAYMENT, then yes, you need to renew your application after every 2 year cycle.

    I'm referring to the loan repayment program. And with it, there are actually 1-year cycles outside of the initial 2-year term.

    Ahh i see. I was referring to the NHSC scholarship program for the 4 years of med school.
    Thanks for the clarification.

    And to close the loop, I did. I couldn't find anything online about others' renewal experience, but for me, my renewal came 4 days after I finished my initial service commitment.

    Few days before the deadline. Anyone have any idea of how to go about changing schools on the application?

    I saw someone on this forum that was withdrawn from the scholarship application because of changing schools. The school information you sent in on the application is the school you are supposed to go to. You can contact them to see if they are willing to change but I heard that is not really likely.

    That was probably me. I left my application just incase it could be changed after I get offered the scholarship. If not it looks like a scholarship is going to open up for some body

    I think that would be stupid of them not do to that... Shoot that almost could open another scholarship to people at lower cost schools.

    Does finalist mean you got the scholarship or you are now in a pool from which they will further select the winners?

    In the email they asked if I wanted to accept the reward and they wanted my enrollment and bank info . So I assume it is final. I need to call Monday.
