The intent of the program is to provide scholarships to individuals to fill hard to recruit positions at VA Medical Centers around the country. HPSP will provide tuition assistance, a monthly stipend, and other required education fees to over 100 students per year pursuing education leading to an appointment in a Title 38 or Hybrid Title 38 occupation. Program participants will also be obligated to a service agreement within the Veterans Health Administration to reduce shortages in critical health care occupations. We project that the Healthcare Talent Management (HTM) Office will begin accepting scholarship applications after VA regulations, policy, and procedures are developed. Awardee selection will be based on merit.
Please know that the scholarship program may be awarded to those who are already in the process of completing their degree. The availability of this scholarship is undetermined; however, please be sure to periodically check VA Careers for any recent updates. If you have any questions, please contact the HTM Scholarship Team at HTMScholarshipTeam@va.gov or (504) 565-4901.
