    Sounds like you have familiarized yourself with the conditions of the grant and they're not acceptable to you. What kind of "help" are you looking for?

    These grants are typically done by state. I have received one through the state of MD and I attend a school in MD and will be working here after graduation. - This link describes the "critical shortage facilities". You are not guaranteed a job and they don't just place you somewhere. You pretty much just can't work in the following:

    • Free Standing Clinics that do not qualify as one of the above CSFs;
    • Renal Dialysis Centers;
    • Private Practice Offices;
    • Assisted Living Facilities; and
    • Private For-Profit Facilities.

    Hope this helps!
