    Hello everyone I received my letter today as well! It was postmarked for Oct. 13th. What a sigh of relief. I hope those of you that are still waiting receive your letters soon. Again I attend school in Nebraska, and only received a finalist email between May and Now!

    Nothing yet for me either.. I called the phone number on our letter of acceptance and the recording said we should make a copy of our award letter and send it in to the financial aid office. Also, the ORC will be $1848. Let's all let each other know when we hear something!

    Hi guys,
    I also received my award letter in the mail this last saturday. Congrats to everyone who got it. To everyone who did not, stay encouraged. I am a senior in nursing school so this was my last chance to get a scholarship. Much needed. To deevee12, what is the ORC?

    it is the "other reasonable costs" payment that they include with the first stipend payment. Here is the information:

    Other Reasonable Costs (ORC) Financial support will be provided to each participant of the NSP for other reasonable educational expenses or costs (ORC) incurred by the student. A standardized ORC payment is established for a full school year, for a full-time student. The ORC payment will be reduced proportionately for students who plan to attend less than a full school year (e.g., December graduates). For part-time students, if funded, the ORC payment will be proportionally reduced. The ORC payment is provided to assist in the payment of the following types of expense:

    • Books
    • Clinical supplies
    • Instruments
    • Insurance (Life or Health Insurance)
    • School ID Cards/ID Fees
    • Travel
    • Uniforms

    The ORC payment will be included in the October stipend payment, which should be received by November 7.

    I just spoke to someone there but was acutally calling the get the "recording" from the earlier post. She said our stipends should be out Nov. 7 or around that time and to copy the letter and send it to our financial aid department and ask them to bill HRSA.
    Hope this helps!
