High school seniors have a lot on their plate when it comes to selecting a college and figuring out a payment plan. 

With the average cost of a year of college in the US surpassing $35,000, higher education is becoming inaccessible for many deserving students. BIPOC and first-generation college students face even more obstacles when applying for and attending college, leaving many bright students behind.

This scholarship seeks to support graduating seniors in the Lexington-Richland School District No. 5 who are planning on pursuing a two or four-year college degree.  

Any high school senior with community service experience who attends a school in the Lexington-Richland School District No. 5 (Chapin High School, Spring Hill High School, Dutch Fork High School, Irmo High School) may apply for this scholarship, but BIPOC and/or first-generation applicants are preferred. 

To apply, tell us how you’ve overcome adversity, what you learned, and how you will apply those lessons to your life and career.
