I was fortunate enough to be accepted to this HRSA scholarship last August. My school is very expensive and i think the commitment is worth it. Anyone else living in the LA area who applied?

My friend got it too and graduated this year and is working at an LA clinic. She almost had to move somewhere she didn't want to go to, but someone she preferred finally accepted her

Make sure you do!! Don't let this opportunity pass you bye. I am a recipient of the NSP and it is worth all the trouble. Get your ducks in a row now. Plan on who you are going to ask to write your two letters of recommendation. Those letters need to be top notch. The people you ask need to be excellent writers. If you don't currently do any volunteer work, START!!! There will also be a tab to upload extra info about yourself that is optional, make sure you upload all the awards, certificates or any other info that you think they should know. Many did not do that and those of us who did seemed to get the scholarship. Just remember this is a nursing scholarship where everyone applying has good grades, excellent letters of recommendation and should be able to write a decent essay. Put forth your best effort and make sure you have someone proof read your essays and go over everything 10 times before you upload it. Good luck to you all!!!!

I am also anticipating the HRSA application for the 2013-14 school year! I just wish that the notifications went out sooner but they also deal with hundreds of apps. My program begins the beginning of September but I will probably have to take out loans to cover the first semester as my school requires we figure out our financial aid during the summer. Glad to have another applicant on the thread I hope this can become a support system for all of us applying! Nice to meet you!
