- 2015 Application and Program Guidance (PDF -433 KB) has the detailed information you need to apply. Please read carefully before you start your Scholarship Program application.
You can apply to the Scholarship Program if you are committed to primary care and accepted to or enrolled in an accredited U.S. school in one of the following primary care disciplines:
- Physicians (MD or DO)
- Nurse Practitioners
- Certified Nurse-Midwives
- Physician Assistants
The scholarship pays tuition, fees, other educational costs, and provides a living stipend in return for a commitment to work at least 2 years at an NHSC-approved site in a medically underserved community.
For each year of financial support (up to four years), the student agrees to serve one year (minimum two years) at an NHSC-approved site in a high-need urban, rural, or frontier community across the nation.
Service begins upon graduation (and completion of primary care residency training for doctors and dentists). The NHSC helps scholars find a practice site that’s right for them. When in service, scholars earn a market-rate salary, paid by the employing facility.
Scholarship payments other than the living stipend are federal income tax-free.
The Scholarship Program accepts applications once each year. Applicants chosen to receive the scholarship are notified no later than September 30.

Thank you to our 2013 & 2014 OCAPICA Scholars who came in to speak to our Sophomore APAC Class about college life and the impact that financial aid had on their college life! Our Sophomores were able to speak to each Scholar during our “speed dating” interview sessions to ask them any questions that they may have had.
Congrats to our seniors who won $5 gift cards to In n Out or Target by submitting their FAFSA/Dream application by the March 2nd deadline! Congrats also to Ms. Noh’s senior class who had the highest percentage of FAFSA/CA DREAM confirmations submitted.
