The University of South Carolina Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers many different kinds of merit scholarships for freshmen who reside in South Carolina. While these awards generally cannot be combined with one another (see Presidential Scholars Award, Provost Scholars Award and USC STEM Supplement), they can be combined with a South Carolina state lottery funded scholarship, making your UofSC education even more affordable.
Sponsored by the Carolina Alumni Association, these awards signify outstanding achievement in academics, leadership, talent and service. To apply for this award, you must submit both a USC application and a Top Scholars application supplement to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Applicants must be a resident of South Carolina.
