The HPSP is available for students pursuing advanced degrees in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, psychiatric nursing, optometry or psychology. To qualify for the Health Professions Scholarship Program, you must:
Be a U.S. citizen with a baccalaureate degree from an accredited school
Be enrolled in (or have a letter or acceptance from) an accredited graduate program in the U.S. or Puerto Rico (varies by specialty)
Maintain full-time student status during the length of the program
Qualify as a commissioned officer
As you attend school, you’ll receive a monthly stipend of more than $2,000. During breaks, you’ll receive officer’s pay while you train as part of our health care team. After graduation, you’ll enter active duty in your specialty and advance in rank to captain. With every promotion, your salary will increase. Your time-in-service and cost-of-living adjustments also lead to pay increases. Additionally, you’ll receive a monthly non-taxable allowance for food and housing.
The U.S. Army health care team will pay 100 percent of your tuition for a graduate-level health care degree for any accredited medical, dental, veterinary, psychology or optometry program in the United States or Puerto Rico.
