The state of West Virginia and the federal government operate most of the available financial incentives.
Financial incentive programs typically provide a cash award in exchange for agreeing to practice for a specified amount of time in a primary care setting in a rural or underserved area of the state. These programs often require that the award be used to pay off student loan debt.
Questions about specific financial incentive programs should be directed to the contact listed for that program.
These are just a few available programs. For more information about other Financial Incentives, please contact the WVU-HSC Financial Aid Office:
