Fields Supported

Professional Healthcare Fields Supported

The CNMI, through the Scholarship Office, will support its residents through PSEP in the following fields of study because they are not readily available at our only higher education institutions, Northern Marianas College. 

The chart below determines the number of available slots the CNMI supports students through WICHE’s PSEP in your field of study. Please keep in mind that slot availability is contingent upon the availability of funds and annual appropriation from the Legislature.
