Authorized by the Mississippi Legislature in 2007, the Mississippi Rural Physicians Scholarship Program identifies rural college students who aspire to return to their roots to practice medicine. Academic enrichment, faculty and physician mentoring and solid financial support are hallmarks of the program, which enables capable young Mississippians to address the challenge of the state’s health-care crisis in their respective rural hometowns.
