The Mississippi Rural Medical and Science Scholars program is designed to expose high school students to the day-to-day practice of medicine and sciences in rural areas and the academic requirements necessary to become a physician or other healthcare professional.

Scholars participate in an in-person summer program at Mississippi State University where they will take a college-level course (Introduction to Health Professions) and participate in a variety of practical learning activities.

The program will take place June 10-29, 2023.


Mississippi students completing the junior year of high school who have achieved a minimum composite ACT score of 20 and whose grades are in line with their ACT score are eligible to apply.
