    My only question is if they consider the amount of school fees and tuition for the school you are attending. I will be going to New York University starting in the Fall, but I think I remember being told that they fund state schools and community college applicants first and expensive private schools last.

    Otherwise, I believe I have a very good chance of getting this scholarship and plan on working in a public hospital once I graduate anyway, so I might as well get funding for school.

    I haven't heard of any funding preference other than the EFC of 0-5500. I am curious now as to if your tuition amount matters...

    What do you do if your program is a spring semester start? I am applying for an accelerated BSN that starts January and goes for a year...Which scholarship cohort do you apply for? Because I cannot apply by May 8th since I won't get an acceptance letter by then. But if I wait til next May 8th I'll be in the second semester of my program!? Do they back pay?

    You are not eligible for this year because you start after september. You can apply for next year, but they will only pay for classes after Spring semester. They only pay for summer if everyone in your program is required to take the classes, which I am assuming they are since it is accelerated. So it looks like you would only get them to cover your summer tuition, fees, living stipend, etc...

    They had a Power Point presentation that reviewed the program information, which is available in the program guide. After the presentation, they answered questions submitted by those attending the webinar.

    They said the PPT presentation and Q&A will be posted for everyone within a week.

    Overall, it was helpful but unfortunately not all the questions submitted could be answered as I'm sure they were bombarded, but they did encourage e-mail and/or calling the help line if you had any unanswered questions.

    So upset I missed the webinar. Was'nt able to login because the room was full already. Anyone applying that lives in NY 5 boroughs and Long Island. I was looking into what kind of facilities you can fulfill your 2 years with and theres not too many hospitals in the list. Seems like alot of non profit organization run clinics. Anyone worried about getting the scholarships funds and not being able to find the job to fulfill the service agrrement. Thats my big concern now!!

    if you are unable to find a job after the 6 month period following graduation, they will assist you in finding somewhere to work. unfortunately, they did say many recipients have had to relocate. when it's all said and done.. this scholarship is a huge commitment and obligation.

    It definately is. I guess I'm torn (im sure alot of people are) on how I'm going to make it through NS. Is it worth it to have to possibly relocate to find a job to fulfill an obligation for payment through NS or maybe just scrape by and take a little extra out in loans to pay for living expenses and coming out of NS being able to apply to your choice of jobs..... oh decisions.

    Does anyone know if we are able to submit an electronic copy of the student aid report? Or is it a must to recieve it from fafsa? I called mine in and am STILL waiting. I actually re-submitted the request today.I really don't want to submit a last minute application.

    Cecix if you don't mind my asking, but, where are you located now? Have you looked at the approved sites? During the webinar, they made it seem as if hospitals in certain areas would be approved as well. So there may be more options. I plan getting more information about this. I plan on attending the next webinar session. You may not have to relocate.

    Does anyone know how strict they are about working in Tier 1 sites (HPSA Score >14)? I am also concerned about finding work after finishing school. There are a lot of HPSA sites that are <13 near my home. This is assuming I receive the scholarship funds, which seems to have been competitive the last several years. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
