    Countersigned!
    I can't believe it!!!

    Edit: DMD student requesting for four years. 3.84GPA, bunch of volunteering, great letters or rec., efn and disadvantaged status.

    My advice to future applicants: Don't think you don't qualify for efn or disadvantage status without calling NHSC and asking them about your specific circumstances! (Example: Receiving the Pell Grant means you can apply as EFN)

    If the contract was countersigned then it is official and legally binding. They cannot take it back...

    For those with countersigantures, were you notified via email? I checked my contact and there is an electronic signature by a HRSA representative this morning. But my award status still says “accepted award - under final review.” I’m concerned...

    That is how it always is. The countersignature shows up before any status update or email.

    It should say your contract is signed. Also in previous years countersignatures were given across 2 days i believe

    Have any finalists not yet received a countersign? Trying to predict whether there will be two or just one round this year...

    If you download your contract by clicking on the link on your portal at the bottom it would say signed by Jamie King!

    The only thing I can see to download is "view your submitted application" or I can click to download an individual document, however, I do not see a link to download a "contract". Does the contract feature only appear if you get the countersignature?

    The contract feature only appears if you were selected as a finalist in August, and signed a contract stating you would serve if chosen

    So if you weren't selected as a finalist in August, does that mean there is no chance of getting it? I read that someone put something about another round??

    Generally, the first countersigns only go out once all the finalists have been selected. There is always a very small chance something changes since HRSA is all over the place, but it’s probably over if you haven’t been named a finalist at this point.

    My HRSA portal was just changed, now it has a welcome page with a link to welcome materials. I also received an email stating the change of my application status.

    Now I feel like I can let my school know that I got the award!!!

    Question: If I am anticipated to matriculate into dental school for fall 2019, when do I start filing this scholarship? or should I have already started? Thank you

    You should apply with the next application cycle. It usually opens around March.
