The South Carolina Rural Physician Incentive Grant Program makes cash awards to physicians who agree to practice in a Health Professional Shortage Area of South Carolina for at least 4 years.

The program will assist physicians and advanced practice professionals in establishing or joining practices in underserved areas. The intent is that during the 4 year period of commitment, they will develop viable practices and become involved in their communities, so that they will continue practicing in the area after the funding period is over.


Applications will be accepted from credentialed physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and physician assistants in South Carolina.
