The 2022 Nurse Corps Scholarship Program (SP) application cycle is now open.

Nurse Corps provides financial support to students accepted to or enrolled in a nursing degree program at an accredited school of nursing in the United States.

Nurse Corps has reserved special funding for the following areas:

  • Up to 20% of awards will go to nurse practitioners with a specialty in psychiatric mental health.
  • Up to $5 million will go to:
    • Registered Nurses to work in women’s health or obstetrics

    • Certified Nurse Midwives to work in improving maternal health outcomes
  • Up to $2 million for career pathway health professionals such as Certified Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides, Medical Assistants, Licensed Practical (Vocational) Nurses, and other entry-level health professionals.
