Scholarships, Loans, Fellowships and Grants

Earning your medical and/or graduate degree from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine prepares you to reap the rewards and challenges of the medical and health sciences profession. That should be your focus, not the cost to pursue your dream.

You are not alone. The School of Medicine’s Office of Student and Career Services is dedicated to helping every eligible student take full advantage of the financial resources available to pay for educational expenses.

With the rising cost of higher education, it is important to explore multiple sources of financial assistance, start planning early, and set a budget. There are a myriad of federal programs and private sources to assist you financially through medical school.

The financial aid sources provided on the our site is not an exhausted list of all sources of aid. However, this information covers the largest and most often used sources of assistance by our students.

Footnote: Federal programs are subject to revision, cancellation, or expansion by the Congress, and the others are subject to today’s economic climate.

LOANS

FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN
A long-term, low interest, campus-based loan based on exceptional financial need. The annual award may not exceed $6,000 with an aggregate total of $40,000. For new borrowers repayment with interest of 5% begins nine months after graduation or the date enrollment drops below half-time. Deferment or forbearance during residency is based on eligibility at the time. The lender is the University of South Carolina

. FEDERAL STAFFORD LOAN
(Unsubsidized)

The Federal Direct Stafford Loan program offers low-interest unsubsidized loans to, graduate, and professional students. Eligibility is determined by completing the FAFSA. The interest is a fixed rate and loan repayment begins six months after graduation or when a student drops below half-time enrollment..
