Each year there are numerous scholarships available to SCCP students thanks to the generous support of alumni and friends of the University of South Carolina and Medical University of South Carolina campuses.

While scholarships are primarily merit-based, financial need and special circumstances are also considered by the Honors and Awards Committee on each campus.

To be considered for a scholarship, students must complete an online application each year. Applications are due each year by midnight on May 19th. Scholarship recipients are chosen on each campus every year between June and July.
