|It is important that all applicants fully understand the conditions of accepting a Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Midwife Scholarship. These awards are not gifts. Student recipients must agree to engage in full time practice in a designated medically underserved area for a period of years equal to the number of annual scholarships received. The scholarship recipient may pre select a medically underserved area where service employment will take place at any time prior to entering practice. This selection may be altered 90 days prior to beginning practice, at which time the recipient must choose from the current list of medically underserved areas and must receive approval from the State Health Commissioner or his designee of the practice location. The practice facility must provide services to persons who are unable to pay for the service and must participate in all government sponsored insurance programs designed to assure access to medical care service for covered persons. Therefore, if a student received a one year scholarship award he must repay that amount by working continuously in Virginia for one (1) year. Full time employment must begin within two (2) years of the recipient's graduation date from the program. Voluntary military service, even if stationed in Virginia, cannot be used to repay scholarship awards. Before any scholarship is awarded, the applicant must sign a written contract agreeing to these terms as established by law and the Board of Health.|
