Each year the College of Health Professions awards numerous merit-based scholarships to applicants who demonstrate exceptional accomplishment and intellectual promise. Scholarships honor students with high academic standing, volunteer experience, financial need, and those who exhibit exceptional leadership roles within the College and the community. Scholarships are awarded two times a year in the fall and spring semesters. All currently enrolled students within the College of Health Professions will be notified prior to the start of each semester when the scholarship applications open in SOARS.

SOARS (Scholarship Opportunity Awards Resource System) is MUSC’s centralized online award management system available to students from all six colleges. SOARS offers students a streamlined approach for applying for scholarships. It simplifies the application process by importing student data directly from the student record, which minimizes the amount of information asked to be provided on the application. Students can view available scholarships for which they are eligible, complete a general and college-specific application that automatically applies them to scholarships, and view and accept scholarship offers.

For a listing of all the scholarships awarded within the College of Health Professions, please review the CHP Scholarship Guide listed below. This will provide more details about each scholarship, such as; the history behind the scholarship, what criteria is required, and the dollar amount of each award.
