NHSC 2013 (National Health Service Corps Scholarship)

No news on my end either but it is really early. I believe this is the earliest students have started hearing back compared to past years. Let's just try to stay reasonably optimistic. Yet, I know I'll be checking my email every 2 minutes now!

Ya, check out the previous posts. Mine was checked on 7/3. No finalist email (yet, I hope), though.

Have any of you noticed your credit being checked by NHSC?

 

Check a couple comments up, they checked my credit on 07/03 and a couple of other commenters on here.

My thoughts exactly. And I will probably be checking my email every 30 seconds or so.

I submitted my application just before the deadline and received an email from the NHSC on Tuesday, July 23, telling me I needed to log in to my NHSC applicant account to receive an update. When I logged in, I received the following message, as well as some instructions regarding additional steps to be completed: "Congratulations! Your application has been identified as a possible recipient for a 2013 NHSC Scholarship Program (NHSC SP) award. This is not a guarantee of an award. ... Your overall Application Status is: Finalist for Award."

Hey yall! I got an email yesterday as well saying that an update has been made on my application so I just checked it and it says I am a finalist! We have to submit a W4 and another verification of enrollment/good academic standing by the 31st. Hopefully we'll find out officially soon after the 31st!

Hello all,

 

I'm just checking to see if there has been any activity since the first round of applicants got notification of their status a few weeks ago. I'm still holding out hope since I wasn't chosen in the first round. I'm wondering if there is a "rolling admissions" style selection practice. Maybe we're all just waiting for those that were notified to accept or reject before the next round of notifications goes out. Any thoughts?

 

Congratulations to those of you that were selected already.

If anyone out there has questions about the NHSC Scholarship, I can possibly answer them. I am a 2012 PA School graduate who is ten months into my 2-year service committment. I was awarded the NHSC Scholarship for 2010-12.

Thanks jts!!! We're all still anxiously waiting to find out if we're recipients. I received my "Finalist" email on July 23rd but my application still says "Under Final Review". Do you remember by chance about when you found out? I received a voicemail from NHSC asking if I received an email confirming something but I've called back about 3 times now (after not receiving any such email) and still haven't heard anything else regarding what that was about. Where are you working now though and what has your experience been like? Thanks for posting!

I guess things were different in 2010 when I was awarded the scholarship, because I didn't find out unitil the Fall of 2010, in Sept or Oct. So I had to take out tuition loans which the NHSC promptly paid. I am working in an underserved health clinic and loving it. My experiences with the NHSC have been totally positive, from the scholarship to the relocation (cross-country) process. They accommodated my needs and reimbursed me promptly for any costs. The only thing that was not covred was my car; they only pay for vehicle transport if you serve in Alaska or Hawaii. But my clinic paid for that anyway so it was all good.

People on SDN keep mentioning a "signature" on the contract page? Have any of you seen a signature on the last page of your contract (other than your electronic one)?

I received a finalist email and sent in my stuff but I have not seen any other signatures.

Has anyone heard anything in the last few weeks... those of us who are still "under review" specifically?

Looks like there has been some activity on the MD/DO/Dentistry side of things. Some have gotten their final acceptances, etc. Not looking too great on our end, it seems. Suppose I won't give up hope QUITE yet, but I think I'm moving in that direction!

 

Will be awfully difficult to go in a primary care direction with the amount of debt I'm taking on. I know lots of us are in the same spot, so I won't whine too much. Guess we'll just keep waiting to find out more.

 

Hopefully some of you guys have gotten good news from NHSC!

I just received the acceptance email this afternoon!! Hoping for good news for you all too!!!

 

Congrats! I'm glad to see that PAs are being accepted. If the forums are any indication, they are pulling less heavily from our ranks.

      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!!

      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!

      Hi!
      So I'm wondering about this: My program starts in June and I took out the full amount of aid offered (money has been tight and I want to use some of it to catch up). If I am fortunate enough to get the scholarship will this then affect my eligibility for the loan because my cost of attendance will be covered? Will I be able to choose to keep part of the loan or will I have to give it all back? If anybody has experience with this I would love to hear from you.

      Hi all!
       
      Congrats to everyone who was accepted this cycle!!! I received my acceptance in February and have been ecstatic since. Then I remembered that I need to pay for this somehow, loans or scholarship.
       
      I am married and have three children under 5, and my wife stays at home, so it is looking like lots of loans or (fingers crossed/praying) NHSC scholarship. I just finished my NHSC scholarship application and submitted yesterday! 
       
      Anyone else apply for the NHSC scholarship?
       
      I know it will be a while before we hear anything, but hopefully we can keep each other updated on our status changes for encouragement. 
       
      Good luck to everyone!
