Possible uses and use restrictions...

Scholarships may only be expended for tuition expenses, other reasonable educational expenses, and reasonable living expenses incurred while in attendance for the year. The Secretary is required to make available at least 16 percent of the funds to schools that will provide scholarships only for nursing students, and must give preference to former Exceptional Financial Need and Financial Assistance for Disadvantaged Health Professions Student recipients. Schools are required to agree that, in providing scholarships under this program, preference shall be given to students from disadvantaged backgrounds for whom the costs of attending the school would constitute a severe financial hardship and disadvantaged students who have participated in an academic enrichment program funded in whole or in part by Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP)or by Nursing Workforce Development (NWD programs. The Secretary may not make a grant to a school unless the school is carrying out a program for recruiting and retaining students from disadvantaged backgrounds and have met the eligibility criteria of demonstrating the success of outcome measures.
