    Has anyone heard of this scholarship
    before?

    Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students Program – Technical Assistance | Bureau of Health Workforce

    Is it the same as the NHSC scholarship? I’m reading through the guidelines, and they explain this:



    The SDS program aims to increase the: 1) number of graduates practicing in primary care, 2) enrollment and retention of full-time students from disadvantaged backgrounds including students who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and 3) number of graduates working in medically underserved communities”

    I can’t tell if they require you to serve as a PCP, or if I just have to serve in a rural area.


    Edit: Nvm... Just read the deadline +pity+

    This is not the NHSC Scholarship. The program that you are referencing appears to require participation/application from your school (in addition to application from the individual recipient).

    Unlike the NHSC Scholarship program, there appears to be no particular service requirement. There is a cap to coverage of tuition/fees with this program that does not exist with the NHSC Scholarship.

    There are many other differences that I noticed. These are simply two different programs that happen to both fall under HRSA.

    Oh my gosh, I apologize for not responding to this message. Apparently I overlooked my alert. Anyways, after reading through this scholarship, is it too late to apply? I noticed the deadline to apply is January 25th, 2016, but I may be overlooking something.
