Health Professional Scholarship Program - Nurse Faculty/Educator Only 2016-17 (Application Closed)
The Health Professional Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students training to be primary care health professionals.

Partcipants commit to teaching as a Nurse Faculty/Educator.
Applicants must meet the following criteria in order to qualify:

- Reside in Washington State for the duration of the approved educational program and service obligation.
- Be a U.S. Citizen, be a permanent resident, or have a Visa type that allows the recipient to work unrestricted in Washington State to fulfill the service obligation.
Scholarship awards are based on availability of state-supported program funds that may not accommodate the entire cost of attendance through the completion of the approved educational program.
