What is the goal of this scholarship program?

To increase the number of nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified nurse midwives practicing in areas of Illinois that have an insufficient number of primary care providers.

What method is used to reach this goal?

Scholarship awards of $7,500 per academic year are available to a limited number of eligible allied health care professional students. Scholarship recipients repay the awards by practicing as nurse practitioners, physician assistants or certified nurse midwives in areas of the state determined by the Illinois Department of Public Health to be designated shortage areas.
Who is eligible for a scholarship?

To be eligible for a scholarship, a nurse practitioner, physician assistant or certified nurse midwife student must be accepted or enrolled in a school located in Illinois and accredited in its field. A student may be full-time or part-time, although part-time students must be enrolled for at least one-third of the number of hours required per term by the school for its full-time students. Applicants must demonstrate financial need and must apply to their school's financial aid department on or before the school's designated application deadline date. The school will be asked to attest to the applicant's good academic standing and financial need.

In selecting award recipients, preference will be shown to applicants meeting the above criteria and demonstrating 1) previous experience with medically underserved populations, 2) greatest financial need, and 3) academic capabilities.

Deadline

Completed applications for scholarship assistance for the upcoming academic year must be received by the Center for Rural Health no later than June 30.
