Hi, did anybody else submit or is about to submit their application for the 2015 NHSC scholarship? Also, does anyone have an idea of the timeline it usually takes to hear something back from them?

It looks like there is more discussion on the dental school forum. From what I gather, there is a huge credit check sometime in mid to late June. In July, they send out finalist notifications. If you get that letter, you have pretty much been accepted for the scholarship.

So...has anybody discovered an update? I just checked SDN and it appears both MD/DO and Dental applicants have had credit checks from CREDCO on 6/11. Naturally I went to creditkarma to see if I was so lucky. Unfortunately, not yet. What about any other PA applicants? The review period was 6/16 - 6/26, so we're still early in the process. Crazy that some applicants had credit checks before their application was even under review...

 

Anyone have ANYTHING to share???

I got my credit checked on 6/11 according to CreditKarma.  It was listed as being checked by CredCo so I called the company and they were able to tell me that it was HRSA that checked my credit.  I am hoping that means good news!

What's your HIPSA score?

What's your HIPSA score?

I wouldn't have a HPSA score yet because I am still in school...I believe that's important for the loan repayment program, but not for the scholarship? Unless I'm mistaken

Sorry  -- I am referring to the loan repayment, not the scholarship.  I wonder if the loan repayment works the same way.

Absolutely nothing :/ No credit check, and still "Under Review" on the portal.

Congratulations on your credit check :) I certainly hope we PAs will have some representatives in the ranks!

I don't mean to be sour grapes, but I'm growing skeptical on how honest HRSA is with their selection process... They claim to start reviews with the Tier 1 applicants (EFNs, which only MD, DO, and DDS? qualify for) and then opt for Tier 2 (Disadvantaged Background) and so on. I am a Tier 2 applicant who has worked/volunteered, typically full-time, with underserved, impoverished populations addressing social and  health disparities for the past 10 years--since graduating undergrad. That I'm not even getting a look doesn't make sense to me.

In pure curiosity cmbooth, would you share your "tier"? Again--huge congrats to you!!! I do hope you're one of the luckies :)

I have been credit checked sometime in the beginning of June but have had no correspondence from nhsc. I'm guessing I won't be hearing anything until they decide of scholarship winners?

The first round of credit checks seems to have been early June of this year. I did just receive a credit check from "credco" on July 17. Anyone else?

I did not...Congratulations though, I believe that means that you received the scholarship! I am hoping they will send out more acceptances this week! Fingers crossed!

Received the finalist e-mail and am now listed as "accepted award-under final review." According to threads from previous years, the next important thing to look for is a co-signature from HRSA that usually happens around August 20th-ish. Then we won't hear final word of scholarship awardees until around September 20th. Word on the street is that when you see that co-signature, you're golden.

I was just accepted into a PA program next summer 2016.  When would I apply to this scholarship? I understand it is very difficult to get but I would still like to apply for it.

      Hi all! Starting this thread because I see some inquiries for the 2019 cycle being tacked on to the 2018 thread so I thought I'd start a new one. I believe applications for those of us starting our programs this year won't open until March and be due in May, but correct me if I'm wrong. 
      Let's do this!!

      So, you have been accepted to HSCP. Yay! Congrats! Go celebrate (reasonably of course). Then what to do,
      Here is what I have been learning over the course of 3 months of not getting paid. I fixed most of the issues now, so hoping to start getting paid the next pay period. 
      Step 1. Get your Military ID made, ASAP. 
      Step 2. Set up mypay account. It's a pain, however once you have your military ID, do yourself a favor and invest in a CAC card reader. You will be able to set up you mypay yourself. 
      Step 3. Update Bank info on mypay. Very Important. (For some reason PSD still hasn't gotten any info about my bank account even after 2nd submission of my paperwork). 
      Step 4. Hope and pray PSD gets these info including your BAH and start paying you.

      Hello prospective NHSC scholars!
      I noticed the scholarship application has officially opened. Looks like the deadline is May 10th. Just thought I'd get an official thread going so we can all chat about the application process and share any updates any of us may potentially get!
      Fingers crossed, good luck everyone!
