The Health Plan believes that a degree in the medical field should be attainable for everyone. The Health Plan scholarship provides need-based funds to medical and nursing students at West Virginia University and Marshall University. Since 2009, The Health Plan has provided over $3 million in scholarships to 59 medical and nursing students who have the intention to stay and practice in the state of West Virginia. 

Students who are currently pursuing a medical degree at West Virginia University or Marshall University, as well as those who are pursuing a nursing degree at WVU, are eligible for The Health Plan Scholarship.

To learn more about an application, students should contact WVU or Marshall University in the spring.
