Financial Aid

For more information about financial aid, visit the MUSC Financial Aid Services website. The College of Health Professions offers a number of scholarship opportunities for students currently enrolled at the college. Students may be eligible to apply for these scholarships after they begin the program. 

The Professionals Supporting PT Education & Recruitment (PROSPER) Scholarship was created by the Physical Therapy Division and the Development Office to help provide an annual scholarship to first-year (incoming) physical therapy students within the College of Health Professions. Two recipients are selected annually for a $15,000 per year renewable award applied directly as a tuition waiver.
