To my veteran PAs:
I recently received an email about the Student to Service HRSA scholarship that states NPs and Certified Midwives are now eligible disciplines for the upcoming scholarship cycle. The reason for the addition is the bolster primary care and obgyn providers in underserved and rural areas. Makes sense to me... however to my surprise PAs are not included in this scholarship opportunity.
Is this an issue that the AAPA would take up? If not, who can I write about this issue other than the HRSA?
The new Simon Scholar PA scholarship program creates pathways for underserved Orange and San Diego County (California) students facing adversity by offering full tuition scholarships. This scholarship provides eligible students who wish to earn their Masters in Medical Science degree (MMS) at the Chapman University Physician Assistant program with the opportunity to graduate in two years with little or no debt. Up to ten scholarships per year will be awarded.
The application portal for the Simon Scholar PA scholarship program is now open. This is the link: https://chapmanuniversity-viceprovost.submittable.com/submit/165573/simon-scholar-pa-program-scholarship-application.

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!!
Signed, NHSC hopeful starting her program in AZ in August 2019
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!
