The U.S. Army offers one of the most generous and comprehensive scholarships available in health care today. It's called the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP).
If you want to become a physician, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist, clinical or counseling psychologist, Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and qualify, you could earn a full-tuition scholarship, plus a monthly stipend of more than $2,200 and in some cases, a sign-on bonus of $20,000.
If you are planning a career in health care or are currently enrolled in a graduate health care program, it pays to look into the Army's HPSP--now more than ever before. It provides benefits while you're in school and benefits after you graduate.
