The Mildred E. Swatko Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a student enrolled in the Nursing or Golf Course Management programs at Horry-Georgetown Technical College. To be eligible, applicants must have maintained a “C” average or better in high school (and must have attended a Horry County high school), and they must demonstrate financial need. To receive this scholarship for each academic year, students must remain in good standing with a minimum of a 2.8 GPA or higher. In addition to completing the application, applicants must also submit an essay (250-word maximum) establishing why they deserve the scholarship. Dollar amounts for this scholarship will vary.
The Waccamaw Community Foundation offers students many different scholarship opportunities. Through the generosity of our donors, we have awarded more than $24 million in grants since the Foundation was established in 1999. We aim to continue that legacy by helping donors of the Waccamaw Region connect with causes they care about. We serve people who share a common concern: improving quality of life in local counties.
