The Nursing Scholarship Program (NSP or Nursing Scholarship) is a competitive Federal program which awards scholarships to individuals for attendance at schools of nursing. The scholarship consists of payment for tuition, fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly support stipend. In return, the students agree to provide a minimum of two years of full-time clinical service (or an equivalent part-time commitment, as approved by the NSP) at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. You must be willing to be placed at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses. You could be placed in the District of Columbia, Guam, or the Virgin Islands.
