Program Analysts

The IHS Scholarship Program Analysts are responsible for the coordination of the various scholarship program functions and processes. As part of this responsibility, they work with you to ensure compliance with your reporting requirements. The Program Analysts monitor the deferment and completion of your service commitment. In addition to these duties, they work with the Division of Grants Management on matters dealing with payments, applications/awards and related processing. What’s more, they track and record data pertaining to you and monitor your academic progress to ensure compliance while you are in school and maintain ongoing communications with the Area Scholarship Coordinators, as well as with other IHS components, governmental agencies and Tribal organizations. Here is a list of Program Analysts by discipline-and their contact information.
