Scholarships and Financial Aid

Our students come to the Medical University of South Carolina from different backgrounds, with different hopes and goals for the future. But they are united in their passion for health care and their dedication to serve others.

We believe that health care should remain a profession for those who want it most and who have worked hardest to be here. This is why MUSC has made it an institutional priority to reduce student debt, with student scholarship support being a cornerstone of this goal.

Admission Scholarships

Merit-based admission scholarships are awarded annually and are based on a candidate's overall evaluation by the Admissions Committee. Since these scholarships are limited, we encourage candidates to apply by our priority admission deadline of October 1, 2023. 

Endowed Scholarship

An endowed scholarship is created within the MUSC Foundation through a gift of at least $50,000. With an endowed fund, only interest is utilized for scholarships; the principal is maintained and grown to perpetuate the gift. An endowed scholarship would payout an annual scholarship award once fully endowed at the $50,000 level. The award will be based on the Foundation’s endowment payout at the time. The College currently has 31 titled endowed scholarship funds. 

Annual Scholarships

Annual scholarships are funded by generous donations made each year to our students. For the 2022-2023 academic year, the College had the privilege of presenting 55 titled scholarships, representing 94 individual awards totaling $285,335.

External Scholarships

Doctor of Pharmacy candidates have the opportunity to apply to a variety of scholarships independent of what is offered through the College of Pharmacy. Here is a list of external scholarships as a resource for those interested in applying.
