How Do You Envision Your Future?

Indian health programs need dedicated health professionals — people like you who envision a career with a purpose and mission and who are willing to commit to working in American Indian and Alaska Native communities where they can truly make a difference.

The mission of IHS is to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level. Because of the IHS Scholarship Program, many qualified American Indian and Alaska Native health professionals are given the opportunity to pursue their careers as well as help their own communities.
