Scholars for a Healthy Oregon
The Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 academic year.  You may submit an application now, even prior to a notification of acceptance to OHSU.  Your application will be reviewed upon acceptance to OHSU.

 

Make a difference with your degree by applying for funding under  the Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative.

In this unique OHSU initiative, upon graduation from your degree program you'll have the opportunity to help address healthcare inequality in Oregon first-hand by working in an OHSU approved designated service site in the state.

Your time commitment to serve in an OHSU approved designated service site would be equal to the length of your studies at OHSU plus one additional year. For example, a student receiving funding under the Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative for a four year degree program would be subject to a service commitment of five years.

In exchange for your commitment to serve upon graduation, you receive funding to cover mandatory tuition and fees for the normal length of your clinical degree program. Other expenses such as books, supplies or equipment charges are not included. It's a serious commitment and a great reward, but also a very real opportunity to help make a difference in one of the medically underserved urban or rural areas of our state.

To be eligible to apply for funding under the Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative, students must be admitted to OHSU for the 2014-15 academic year in one of the following clinical degree programs:

Doctor of Medicine (MD)

Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD)

Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS)

Master of Nursing (MN) in:

Nurse Anesthesia

Family Nurse Practitioner

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
