Get VA to cover the cost of your degree with these scholarship programs

We know the cost of your education can be stressful, which is why VA offers a number of different scholarship programs to help you pay for school and pave the way to a successful, meaningful career serving Veterans.

Two of those programs have rapidly approaching deadlines, so if you’re an aspiring clinician or mental health professional, now is your chance to take advantage of these scholarships.

The Health Professionals Scholarship Program (HPSP) offers scholarships to those becoming clinicians (e.g., physicians, nurses, pharmacists, etc.). Through this quickly growing program, thousands of students have received scholarships and monthly living stipends. In turn, you’ll agree to work at a VA facility for a minimum of two years.

The Vet Center Scholarship Program offers similar scholarships to HPSP, but with a focus on mental health careers (e.g., social workers, psychologists, counselors, etc.). You’ll still receive a monthly living stipend, though your commitment to VA will be six years working at one of 300 Vet Centers across the country.

The stipends for these programs were increased to $1,300 this year, making an even bigger impact for health professionals who want to do mission-oriented work.
