Awards ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 are going to medical and dental students who are committing to practice for at least two years in high-need locations in West Virginia.
The health sciences service program awards have been announced by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission. They have been granted to 14 students in master or doctoral health profession programs.
Since its creation in 1995, the program has supported more than 175 health professionals who have given back to the state through their service.
Eligible students must be enrolled in the final year of a health profession program at a college or university in the state. They are training to become dentists, primary care doctors, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners and pharmacists, among other health professions.
