Health Professions Education Scholarship - HPEF

Provided by: Health Professions Education Foundation


Up to $10,000


September 11, 2010

The Health Professions Education Scholarship is available to California residents who have been accepted in a health professions program, including dentistry, dental hygiene, nurse practitioner, certified nurse midwifery and physician assistant. To be eligible for this award, you must be a full- or part-time student (no less than six units) at an accredited California school, have a minimum 2.0 GPA, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and agree to complete a two-year service obligation to practice in a medically underserved area of California providing direct patient care. Priority will be given to students whose community background and commitment indicates the likelihood of long-term employment in a medically underserved area even after the service obligation has ended. Selection is based on work experience, financial need, career goals, community service, community background and academic performance.
