Part III
Scholarship Awards

Any currently enrolled student in full-time attendance at a participating medical school or a graduate of such school who has accepted placement in, but not entered the first year of an accredited internship or accredited residency approved by the medical school that nominated him for the scholarship, shall be eligible for the Virginia medical scholarship. Preference for the scholarship award shall be given to: residents of the Commonwealth, students whose period of residence in one or more medically underserved areas is deemed by the participating medical school to indicate a high likelihood that the student would fulfill his contractual obligation to practice in a medically underserved area, and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds over nonresidents. Additionally, preference shall be given to graduates accepted by approved primary care residencies in Virginia over graduates in approved out-of-state residencies. Virginia medical scholarships are available for medical students who are enrolled at the James H. Quillen College of Medicine of East Tennessee State University when such individuals are determined to be committed to practicing in a medically underserved area in Southwest Virginia. Preference for the scholarship award shall be given to residents of Southwest Virginia.
