Thank you for your interest in the Scholars for a Healthy Oregon Initiative Funding. The initiative is intended to address issues related to high tuition and the shortage of healthcare professionals in Oregon's rural and underserved communities. A full list of the obligations for this funding are listed below.

Funding is available to applicants who are admitted to select academic programs at OHSU: Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS), or Masters of Nursing (MN) in Nurse Anesthesia, Family Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Midwifery, or Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Funding priority will be given to Oregon residents or applicants who can demonstrate Oregon Heritage (policy number: 0-02-1012) under OHSU admissions criteria. Further priority consideration will be given to applicants who are:

-Students who lived and/or graduated high school in a rural location or underserved community or who graduated from one of the four regional Oregon University System institutions (Eastern Oregon University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Southern Oregon University or Western Oregon University)

-First generation college students

-Individuals from a diverse or under-represented community
