Connecting Students to Careers, Professionals to Communities, & Communities to Better Health.


The Nebraska AHEC Scholars Program is a two-year program for health profession students who want to practice health care in rural and urban underserved areas.

AHEC Scholars gain lifetime connections with health professionals in a variety of disciplines. AHEC Scholars work as an interdisciplinary team and gain access to real world experience beyond the classroom through workshops, a statewide speaker series, newsletters, and by applying their skills in community-based experiences.

Those accepted into the Nebraska AHEC Scholars Program may be eligible for a stipend.
