Health Education Financial Aid

Many rural areas experience shortages of physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and other essential health care providers. Many government and private sources offer programs which assist students with the cost of education in health care fields through grants, loans, fellowships, scholarships, and student loan repayment.

Some programs require a specified term of service in an underserved area or have other special conditions. General student financial aid is also available to qualified applicants. This guide is designed to help you locate programs and organizations which make health education more accessible and affordable.
