BIPOC students are becoming an increasingly large portion of student bodies across the country but their needs often go unacknowledged.
BIPOC students face many different challenges in higher education, such as a lack of mentors. Not even 25% of faculty members are BIPOC, leading to few opportunities for mentorship as well as a lack of faculty who understand the experiences of students of color.
This scholarship seeks to support students in South Carolina who demonstrate an interest in community and public services and hard work in academics.
Any BIPOC high school senior or undergraduate student in South Carolina with a 3.0 GPA or higher and community service experience may apply for this scholarship.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
