How Do You Envision Your Future?

Are you looking forward to a health professional career with a purpose and sense of mission? A path that brings you opportunity, adventure and personal fulfillment? Working in an Indian community where you’re really needed, perhaps your own community? If so, your opportunity for success starts here, with the Indian Health Service (IHS) and the IHS Scholarship Program.

IHS’ mission is to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level. The IHS Scholarship Program, created by authority of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, is designed to help the agency achieve this mission by providing scholarships to American Indian and Alaska Native students focused on the health professions in a variety of fields — people like you who will fill Indian health program staffing needs.
