Does anyone have any experience being awarded the NHSC Scholarship?

I applied and I'm going to a private dental school where the cost is upward of 100K and I'm wondering if they even give the scholarship to someone going to private schools because the tuition is so high.

Anyone have any insight on this?

I received the scholarship paying roughly that much as an out of state student.

That must have been an amazing feeling. How many years did you request? And if you've started your service requirement, did you get a say about where you would be placed?

I'm pretty sure most of the people that apply are from private schools/out of state, for obvious reasons, so don't worry too much. I did 4 years since the student loan pay off is so huge. I haven't started but I know that you have complete say in where you want to work. The only time you get placed somewhere is if after something like 6 months you haven't started working sonewhere, something like that. You decide from a list of hundreds of sites that are hiring and submit your
application like any other job and see if you get hired. It's very different from the military.

Yes, you can receive the scholarship even if you are attending an expensive private school.
