    i don't think the scholarships offered by us military services (like hpsp) are available to med students attending carribean. i think aids are only available to students attending us or puerto rico med schools.

    tho i think these scholarships might be available after a student who is attending carribean (or any med school outside the us) obtains residency position in the states.

    The medical school scholarship, HPSP, is only available for US and Puerto Rico medical schools (either MD or DO).

    Once you graduate from medical school in the Carib (or elsewhere) and complete your internship year in the States, then you are available to apply for the FAP or STRAP programs. They offer a commission as a medical corps officer, monthly stipend over and above your residency pay, and a big check once per year as well, in exchange for service after residency.
