The Nurse Corps Scholarship Program application period will close on Thursday, May 2, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

If selected, the Nurse Corps Scholarship Program will pay your tuition, fees, and other educational costs (ex. books, clinical supplies and instruments), plus a monthly stipend for living expenses. In return, you work at a Critical Shortage Facility for at least two years following graduation.

You are eligible for this program if you:

  • Are a U.S. citizen (born or naturalized), a national, or a lawful permanent resident
  • Are an accepted or enrolled, full-time student in a nursing degree program at an accredited school of nursing in the United States
  • Begin classes no later than September 30
  • Do not have any federal judgment liens
  • Do not have an existing service commitment
  • Are not overdue on a federal debt


Note: To be eligible, your nursing school must be currently accredited by a national or regional nurse education accrediting agency or state approval agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. We also recognize nursing programs accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), and these five Nursing State Boards: Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, New York, and North Dakota.
