Scholarship and Loan Repayment Options for Health Professionals

For healthcare professionals

CHC can help you eliminate the debt incurred while getting your education – even as you practice the healthcare services for which you were trained.

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), a national program of both scholarship and loan repayment. It’s an outstanding benefit for clinicians and a unique way for healthcare professionals to fulfill their NHSC obligations.

Licensed providers can earn up to $50,000 toward student loans in exchange for a 2-year commitment to a NHSC-approved site.

Scholarships are available for those who are committed to primary care and are accepted to or enrolled in an accredited US school in a primary care-related discipline. Doctors, nurse practitioners, dentists, dental hygienists, social workers, and psychologists are all eligible.

For anyone thinking of a career in healthcare

People who are serious about a career in healthcare should also consider applying for a NHSC scholarship.

An NHSC scholarship pays tuition, fees, other educational expenses, and a living stipend in exchange for 2 to 4 years of working at CHC. Service begins upon graduation (and completion of primary care residency training for doctors and dentists).
