NHSC 2013 (National Health Service Corps Scholarship)


Recommended Posts

Hello there fellow PA Students. I just wanted to create a thread for the 2013 NHSC (National Health Service Corps) Scholarship applicants so we can keep in touch about hearing back or to answer any questions other students may have. I know the website says we should hear back by September 30th but I spoke with another student in my class who applied as well and she heard somewhere that we COULD hear back as early as July. I know most likely this is not the case but I figured with this thread we could have a better idea of when students start hearing back. Good luck everyone!

I applied as well and am anxiously waiting! I read that in previous years they told people if they were finalists in August and then told those finalists who actually got the award at the end of September. I figure it's going to be a bit of a waiting game so I'm just trying to be patient! Good luck everyone!

Hoping for good news as well. There is no information (public) of the breakdown of who gets the scholarships - MD vs PA, etc... Nor, is there any percentages published for types of career paths. To my knowledge, there is nothing on the Rumor horizon either. To put it bluntly: I realize that patience is a virtue... I'm just short on virtues at the moment. :wink:

 

Good luck to all!

I read in the application packet that there were only 190 scholarships this year as compared to 220 in the past. I am assuming due to budget cuts. I called yesterday since I was having issues logging into my portal (now fixed) and they said they have started reviewing files and that we will be notified anytime between now and September but most likely September. She told me to constantly check my email that they will send out letters (I am guessing to the qualified applicants). I talked to a student who received the award last year and he said he was notified he was a in the finalist in august and received the award in november (that may be when he actually received the money not when he was notified he won).

 

Hope that helps. I am anxiously awaiting as well!

Hey everyone!! On the same SDN website, they mentioned the NHSC had run a credit report on some of the applicants on 07/03. You can check on annualcreditreport.com through experian.

My credit report was checked on 07/03 by CBC - Primary Health, which is the NHSC. I don't really know if this is an important sign or not, but it is exciting to just see some movement with respect to our applications.

Check your report and lets see who else has the same!

Same here. Hopefully a good sign!

Thanks for the answers. I submitted mine pretty early so it's probably not looking too good for me. Congratulations if it goes thru!

 

Who knows? I'm still assuming that I won't be getting it. My mindset the whole time has been that I would have to get pretty lucky to receive the scholarship! But fortunately there is always the loan repayment option, which I hear is less competitive. Definitely my next step if I don't receive the scholarship!
