Nursing Student Scholarship Program

The Health Professional Scholarship Program (HPSP) provides financial assistance to students receiving education or training in a direct health care service discipline, such as nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses and nursing associate degrees. To qualify for the scholarship, the student needs to have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be willing to work at a local VA to help care for our nation's heroes. Locations may expand based on the number of qualified candidates.

Each year, we help university and post-graduate students complete their training and pursue their careers. Find the opportunities that are right for you.
