Visiting Medical Student Stipend

NACHP is offering a stipend for a sub-internship for visiting medical students to explore a specialty of interest, spark interest in residency at UW–Madison, and introduce NACHP as a resource at UW. This opportunity is for 3rd and 4th year students who are enrolled with a federally recognized tribe and/or have shown a strong commitment to American Indian/Alaska Native communities. For first consideration, please apply by May 30th, 2024. However, we will continue to accept applications until all funds have been awarded. Contact NACHP with questions at nachp@hslc.wisc.edu.

Service and Military Scholarships

The U.S. military and the National Health Service Corps offer scholarships to students willing to serve in the military or provide care in underserved areas, respectively. These scholarships often cover the full cost of tuition and require recipients to provide several years of service after completing medical training.

Applicants who have served in the U.S. military may be eligible for funding from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, including funding up to the full amount of tuition. Wisconsin residents who are veterans may be eligible for funding from the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs.

You may be eligible for loan repayment via federal programs.
