South Carolina Graduate Incentive Scholars Program

The Graduate Incentive Scholarship (GIS) Program will provide forgivable loans to "other race" students in master’s, first professional, and doctoral programs at public higher education institutions where such programs are offered. The GIS program is implemented annually at the following institutions: Clemson University, University of South Carolina, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Winthrop University, S. C. State University, and Francis Marion University.



"Other race" students are African-American students at traditionally white institutions and white students at traditionally black institutions.

"Shortage" academic/professional areas are areas in which overall shortages exist in South Carolina, or areas in which black state residents are underrepresented. The definition also applies to manpower needs in South Carolina.
