Application Process for 2020-2021 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. 

Stipends

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