The NHSC Scholarship Program is available to individuals accepted to or enrolled in an accredited U.S. school to become a primary care physician (MD or DO), dentist, nurse practitioner (post graduate degree with clinical practice focus), certified nurse-midwife or physician assistant.The scholarship pays tuition, fees, other educational costs, and provides a living stipend in return for a commitment to work at least 2 years at an NHSC-approved site in a medically underserved community.
For each year of financial support (up to four years), the student agrees to serve one year (minimum two years) at an NHSC-approved site in a high-need urban, rural, or frontier community. There are over 100 approved sites in Nevada; a pdf list is available for download from the Nevada Primary Care Office website (PDF – 204 KB). Service begins after graduation (and completion of primary care residency training for doctors and dentists). The NHSC helps scholars find a practice site that’s right for them. When in service, scholars earn a market-rate salary, paid by the employing facility. The 2016 Application and Program Guidance (PDF – 433 KB) has the detailed information needed to apply. Please read carefully before starting a Scholarship Program application.

Webinar: “From Zero to 60: Medical-Legal Partnership Fundamentals & Strategies”
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
10 am HST / 12 pm PST / 2 pm CST / 3 pm EST (please note the time for your location)
Addressing patients’ health-harming civil legal needs as part of primary care has emerged as a critical strategy for HRSA funded health centers seeking to address the social determinants of health. Over 75 health centers incorporate civil legal aid as part of the healthcare team to help meet the housing, income, education and other needs of low- income populations, with more in the pipeline. Core components of a successful medical-legal partnership feature strong integration of the health and legal partners, shared priorities, funding and mission, and shared communication and training strategies.
This webinar aims to help participants understand: the medical-legal partnership (MLP) approach and field, and how it aligns with existing health centers’ services and priorities, especially enabling services; the skills, resources and capacity of the civil legal aid community; and the opportunities for multi-sector engagement across all health centers and civil legal aid offices with a focus on population health strategies.

The application process is a simple application.

Eligibility and Special Considerations
Representatives of communities (including neighborhoods or main street districts) anywhere in the United States are eligible to apply. EPA encourages applications from communities that are economically challenged and in the early phases of their efforts to promote local foods and community revitalization. Special consideration will be given to communities in federally designated Promise Zones or USDA StrikeForce counties.
Applicants will be evaluated on how well the project can help create walkable, healthy, economically vibrant neighborhoods through the development of local food systems. Selected projects will support one or more of USDA’s Seven Strategies for Economic Development
