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.

During the 2020-2021 academic year the College had the privilege of presenting 47 titled scholarships representing 77 individual awards and totaling nearly $1 million of combined student financial support. 

Dean's Scholar Program

The Dean’s Scholar Program is a new, highly-selective scholarship program created to recognize some of the finest MUSC College of Pharmacy applicants. A select number of students are accepted into this prestigious program, which provides tiered-percentage scholarships totaling nearly $1 Million per class over the four year program.

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.

Pharm.D. Outside 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 outside scholarships as a resource for those interested in applying.
