The Rural Nurse Practitioner Scholarship
Program offered by Illinois Farm Bureau does double duty. How
so? It helps out nurses and it helps out rural healthcare. It's a
win-win for everyone!
Twenty percent of the U.S. population lives in rural areas, but
only nine percent of physicians practice there. The Rural Nurse
Practitioner Scholarship Program (RNPSP), now in its twenty-first
year, supports nurses who want to become nurse practitioners and
serve in rural communities. Five scholarship grants of $4000 each
are awarded to nurse practitioner students who agree to practice
for two years in an approved rural area in Illinois. The program is
sponsored by the Illinois Farm Bureau and the Illinois State
According to Mariah Dale-Anderson, who heads up the program for
IFB, "This scholarship has helped many qualified applicants hurdle
financial needs or borderline academic barriers to receive a
medical education. In all, more than 55 students have benefited
from loans and recommendations to the University of Illinois."
Applications are available at your county Farm Bureaus or on the
Rural Illinois Medical Student Assistance Program website at RIMSAP.com. You
can also contact Mariah Dale-Anderson at 309-557-2350, or e-mail
her at email@example.com.
