University scholarships and grants are awarded to both entering freshmen and upperclassmen. Scholarship awarding usually occurs twice a year; once in the spring for the next academic year and once in the fall (called make-up awarding) for the spring semester of the current academic year.
The State of South Carolina funds several scholarship programs for residents.
Also referred to as non-university scholarships, these awards are funded by various individuals, organizations and companies. Application and awarding procedures vary. A listing of free scholarship search services is provided. All outside funding must be reported to the Financial Aid Office.
