We strongly encourage students to apply for outside scholarships. Each year, many of our students receive some funding from organizations outside MGH IHP. Places to look include:
- civic and religious organizations
- professional organizations in your program of study
- Your state and town
- Your undergraduate institution
In addition, we recommend using only free scholarship websites only such as fastweb.org or SallieMae.Com/GradScholarships. Please beware that you should NEVER pay for a scholarship search. If you have questions about the legitimacy of a scholarship organization, please contact the financial aid office for assistance.
We are excited to make you aware of a private scholarship opportunity, the Joanne Wood Scholarship Fund, open to our students here at MGH Institute of Health Professions. We encourage you to visit this website for more details on how to apply: http://jwsf.fund.
Scholarship Opportunities for Health Professions
Nurse Corps Scholarship Program
As a student accepted or enrolled in a diploma, associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree nursing program, you can receive funding for tuition, fees, and other educational costs. In exchange you must work at a facility with a critical shortage of nurses—a Critical Shortage Facility (CSF)—upon graduation. This is a government-sponsored program of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
National Health Service Corps
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) awards scholarships and loan repayment to primary care providers in eligible disciplines, including Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. This is a government-sponsored program of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
