In 1948, The Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS) and Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB)® formed a partnership with a goal of providing doctors in rural communities in Illinois.  Then in 1994 Illinois Farm Bureau® Rural Nurse Practitioner Scholarship Program was established to encourage and develop the pool of rural health practitioners to help meet primary health care needs in rural Illinois.  Students who receive scholarships/financial assistance through both programs must agree to practice for a minimum number of years in an approved rural area in Illinois.

To be eligible for both assistance programs, students must be Illinois residents and must meet certification requirements.

Applications for both are available at through this link RIMSAP – Providing Financial Assistance and Recommendations for Medical Education, on the Rural Illinois Medical Student Assistance Program website at, or by writing Donna Gallivan, Program Manager, Illinois Farm Bureau, 1701 Towanda Avenue, Bloomington, IL 61701.  Applications are due May 1.
