Awarded By

Health Professions Education Foundation

Award Amount

Up to $13,000 annually, non-renewable. The student's graduation date may affect the amount of funding he/she is eligible to receive. Funding is intended to pay tuition, required fees, books, supplies, and educational equipment costs related to the student's registered nurse or pre-nursing education.


The number of awards offered varies annually. Last year, 74 awards were given.

Additional Information

Recipients must graduate after June 30 of the award year. Recipients of this award must complete a two-year service obligation to practice in a medically underserved area of California as a registered nurse providing full-time (32 hours per week) direct patient care. Program recipients are required to complete their service obligation in a medically underserved area or facility. If the recipient does not successfully fulfill this contractual obligation, he/she will be required to repay all scholarships or loan repayments received, plus 10 percent interest and $250 administrative fees. Selection for the awards is based on the following criteria: work experience, financial need, career goals, community service, community background, and academic performance. Priority is given to applicants whose community background and commitment indicates the likelihood of long-term employment in a medically underserved area even after the service obligation has ended. Applicants who owe a service obligation to practice direct patient care to another entity entered into before filing an application with the foundation are ineligible to receive a scholarship.
