Loan Repayment & Scholarship Programs for Nurses

Application cycles are currently open for the Health Professions and Education Foundation scholarship programs and the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program:

2016 HPEF Scholarship Programs

The scholarships deadline is February 29, 2016.

The Health Professions Education Foundation (HPEF) is a state non-profit that annually awards millions of dollars in scholarship and loan repayment awards to students and health professionals.

The purpose of the HPEF scholarship program is to improve access to healthcare in underserved areas of California by providing scholarships to health professional students who are dedicated to providing direct patient care in those areas. In return for this support, recipients agree to provide direct patient care in a medically underserved area (MUA) of California for a period of one to three years.

2016 NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program

The application cycle is now open and will close on February 25, 2016.

The purpose of the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program is to assist in the recruitment and retention of professional registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses dedicated to working in health care facilities with a critical shortage of nurses, or working as nurse faculty at an eligible school of nursing. The program offers these RNs substantial financial assistance to repay a portion of their qualifying educational loans in exchange for full-time service at either a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses or at an eligible school of nursing in the case of nurse faculty.

A pre-recorded Webinar is available and covers eligibility requirements, the online application process, and resources for those considering applying to the NURSE Corps Loan Repayment Program.
