The HRSA Nursing Scholarship Program is now accepting applications.

The HRSA Nursing Scholarship Program is a selective program of the U.S. Government that helps alleviate the critical shortage of nurses currently experienced by certain types of health care facilities by helping needy students complete their nurse training. The scholarship’s benefits include tuition, other school-related costs, and a monthly stipend. In exchange for the scholarship, newly graduated nurses work at these facilities for at least two years. Nursing Scholars fulfilling their service commitment receive a competitive salary and benefits package. To be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and be enrolled in full-time professional nursing degree programs (baccalaureate, graduate, or associate’s degrees). Preference will be given to qualified applicants with financial need.

The application deadline is Tuesday, May 8, 2012.

For more information on the Program or to complete the application, visit the Program Website.

Students interested in applying may contact Dr. Geoff Hempill at or 718.982.2301 for assistance with their applications. Further information can also be found in the Career and Scholarship Center in Building 1A, Room 105.
