ESP Scholarship Fund

Brochure (PDF) | Scholarship Packet (PDF) | Am I Eligible? (PDF)

The Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia/ESP Fund is a medical student loan program designed to help promote and encourage family physicians to practice in West Virginia. The fund originated in 1978 -1980 when the nearly 15,000 members of the West Virginia Federation of Women's Clubs raised over $60,000 for ESP (Educational Seed for Physicians). On May 1, 1991, the ESP Fund was transferred to the Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia.

ESP is now governed by the Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia Board with a Selection Committee composed of representatives from the Foundation Board, GFWC West Virginia and the medical profession. Each year the Selection Committee selects recipients in April from among the qualified applicants. Loans to individual recipients in the amount of $5,000 per year for the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year medical students, may be awarded on the basis of need and interest in Family Medicine.

A student receiving an ESP Loan promises to specialize in the field of Family Medicine, and upon completion of his/her intern or residency training, he/she promises to practice in the state of West Virginia for two years upon completion of his/her intern or residency training, unless awarded the scholarship as a 4th year medical student, in which case he/she must promise to practice in the state of West Virginia for one year upon completion of his/her intern or residency training. After one to two years of practice is completed, the Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia ESP Fund agrees to waive repayment. If the recipient fails to fulfill the agreement, he/she will be obligated to repay the scholarship plus interest.

A student may apply for both the ESP & Tully, however, only one scholarship will be granted per student
