Nurse Corps Scholarship 2017-2018

  1. Hi everyone,
    I am interested in applying to the nurse corps scholarship 2017 2018 in order to pay for my accelerated program of sixteen months. I have a bachelors in sociology. I have done quiet a few researches. The application cycle will be open this month but I don't know which exact date. I have read discussion threads of previous years and have found really helpful information. I want to create a platform where interested applicants can ask questions, share information, discuss and help each other.

    I was so excited to received an email saying that the app opened, only to later realized that it was for postgrad programs. Has anyone found an answer to WHEN this application opens?

    Just spoke to HRSA today and they said they will be opening it this month but the program doesn't let them know which day until the day of. Kind of weird...

    Well, thank you for starting this thread. Does anyone know if the need-based calculation is based off 2015 tax return year or 2016 tax returns (what we submitted last year before April 2016) or the tax return we will fill out this year before April 2017?

    I received notification about the NHSC over the weekend, but not this one as of today.
