The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) provides funding for tuition, fees, books and instruments as well as a monthly living expense stipend.
In return for the scholarship, recipients are obligated to give one year of service for each year of support (minimum two years of service). Recipients will be required to spend 45 days on active duty each year while in school (usually on weekends).
Eligibility is for U.S. citizens based on academic performance, recommendations and physical requirements.
