Proposed Changes to the Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students Program
On May 22, 2019, HRSA published a 30-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting feedback on a range of issues pertaining to the Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) Program to assist the agency in updating certain SDS policies. HRSA requested feedback on adjusting funding allocations to respond to projected workforce shortages, transitioning data collection from 1 year of data to a 3- year average to demonstrate eligibility, and increasing the maximum scholarship award from $30,000 to $40,000. As a result of HRSA's comprehensive review of existing policies, and taking into consideration the comments received, HRSA is issuing this final notice.
