The Rural Health Scholarship Program is designed specifically to prepare students from rural Indiana to return to their hometowns, or a similar town, as a primary care physician. Indiana State University and Indiana University School of Medicine have joined together to develop this unique program.

For consideration for this award, candidates must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, a 1200 SAT (combined critical reading and mathematics on one test date) or a 27 ACT, and reside in rural Indiana.

To view the rules and regulations governing this scholarship, see rules and regulations.

Selection is highly competitive and based upon academic and personal accomplishments, as well as performance in a winter interview competition. Admission to Indiana University School of Medicine requires students to successfully complete the undergraduate program at Indiana State with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 and a score on the MCAT equal to the mean score of the previous year's entering class.
