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 VHA, reducing shortages in critical health care occupations. We project that scholarship applications will begin to be accepted by the Healthcare Talent Management (HTM) Office after development of VA regulations, policy, and procedures. The selection of awardees will be merit based.
Please know that the scholarship program may be awarded to those who are already in the process of completing their degree. Please follow up with HTM in January 2014 to receive further information regarding applying for the scholarship. If you have any questions please contact the Scholarship Team at HRROScholarshipTeam@va.gov or call the HTM Scholarship Team at 1-504-565-4901.
