Application Process for 2017-2018 Financial Aid


Student Debt Counseling

Current and past students of OHSU have access to services through the Student Debt Counseling and Financial Management Program. By helping to mentor and educate students while they are attending OHSU, the Student Debt Management Program strives to help students create their own educational debt management plan so that they have a better understanding of their obligations and options after graduation.

 

Stipend

Students enrolled in the combined MS/DI program and placed at the VA Portland Health Care System for their primary placement site may receive a stipend for the first year of the program. The ability to offer the stipend is negotiated on an annual basis. Stipends are currently not available to students placed at any other supervised practice sites affiliated with the program.

Students enrolled in the Dietetic Internship program and placed in Medford, OR for their supervised practice rotations will be granted a travel reimbursement. The amount of the stipend and ability to offer the stipend is determined on an annual basis by the GPHN Program Director and will be discussed with Medford-placed interns during GPHN's Orientation Week.
