Proposed Project: National Health Service Corps Travel Request Worksheet—Extension
Clinicians participating in the HRSA National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program use the online Travel Request Worksheet to receive travel funds from the Federal Government to perform pre-employment interviews at sites on the NHSC's Opportunities List.
The travel approval process is initiated when a scholar notifies the NHSC of an impending interview at one or more NHSC approved practice sites. The Travel Request Worksheet is also used to initiate the relocation process after a NHSC scholar has successfully been matched to an approved practice site. Upon receipt of the Travel Request Worksheet, the NHSC will review and approve or disapprove the request and promptly notify the scholar and the NHSC logistics contractor regarding travel arrangements and authorization of the funding for the site visit or relocation.
The estimated annual burden is as follows:Start Printed Page 51280
