NHSC Scholarship 2019

Recommended Posts

Should I be worried that I did not put my discipline or the last 4 digits of my SSN on all my supporting documentation? I barely read that on the NHSC site and I already submitted my application

I'm not sure, but I read through the instructions after I first submitted my application and then frantically resubmitted it with the required information.

Hey, after reading your post, I realized that I made that mistake as well. I found it misleading that the documents the NHSC Scholarship generated for you (like the Verification of Good Standing) didn’t have a section to put your discipline. They only asked for full name and SSN. 

I’m hoping that as long as your first and last name was on all documents, everything will be okay. At this point it’s too late to fix it. And idk if calling their help line would do any good? I’ve called before for a separate question, and never got a concrete answer since responders are reading from a manual. 

I guess let’s just hope for the best? *sighs*

If it helps, I asked if it was necessary for me to to resubmit all documents with the last 4 of SSN, name and discipline during the Q & A when I realized that my first ref. letter did not contain that info.; the response was that it was not an issue. However, I did make sure to place that info on each essay.

Hi all,

I sent the verification form to my schools financial aid office and they replied that their PA program does not participate in the program. Anybody and any experience with this situation?

@lschwart10 I also had this issue and was unable to resolve it prior to submitting. SO FRUSTRATING. Any idea if there's a way to do this post-hoc?

Thought I would share this post from the SDN for anyone who is curious about the next steps 🙂 Dates may vary between application cycles. Wishing everyone the best of luck!! Fingers crossed that there's a strong PA representation amongst award recipients this year 🙂

Hey everyone! When the time comes, do we know if everyone gets a credit check, or is it sort of like a first round of cuts? So anxious!

Hey all! Received my credit check yesterday and was alerted by my creditkarma account. Fingers crossed for everyone! Please post if anyone gets a finalist email 🙂

I know it’s not a guarantee, but I literally started crying when I saw the credit check.  Pro tip- I had to create an account with credit karma to see it because it didn’t show up on Experian. Sending out positive vibes to everyone!!

How can you tell if you have your credit checked on CreditKarma?

So if you log in, on the home page click credit, and it will show you your trans union credit score, but you can also click to see your equifax credit score. If you scroll down to see the factors affecting your credit score, one of the categories is “hard inquiries”. If you click here, it should show you if you have a hard inquiry from “Credco”. Good luck!

Mine has not been checked.  I was one of the people who forgot to put my name and SS number on top of all of my documents so let that be a warning for everyone next year!!

I have years of relative experience working with underserved communities so I feel like I would have made it through the initial screening if I hadn't messed this part up.

So at this point if our credit has not been checked do we assume we are not being considered at all? I also forgot my name and SS on top of my documents so I really hope that is not the reason 😞

I received my credit check from Credco on 7/15/19. I did not put my SSN and discipline on all of the supporting documents, but still got the 1st round credit check. Don’t lose hope!

My credit check went through *fingers crossed with y'all*

My credit is kind of atrocious right now...but I am hoping that proves my financial hardship and has them take pity on this poor PA student trying to turn his life around.

This is so great to hear!  I didn’t come to the forum until after the deadline. Good luck to everyone!

I received my finalist email on 8/6 at 5pm as well. And I would say it's more than okay to be optimistic about this next step in the process 🤩 Good luck everyone

Congrats for everyone how received a finalist email! I think you can feel pretty optimistic that the contracts will be countersigned 🙂

 

Historically, a 2nd round of finalists get notified a week after the 1st round so try to keep your chin-up up if you haven't heard back yet!

      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!

      Hey everyone,
      I'm in the process of starting my essays for this year's NHSC scholarship and was wondering if anyone had advice on how they approached the essays. My specific questions are highlighted below.
      1) How specific were you in outlining your future career plans for the essay on the NHSC mission? Did you list HPSA sites and/or non-profit organizations you were interested in affiliating with? 
      2) How did you approach the essay regarding your commitment to working in primary care? Did you take a narrative approach regarding life events or circumstances that led you to pursue a career in primary care, a philosophical approach rationalizing the importance of primary care, a combination of the two, or something altogether different?
      Thanks in advance for any help!
