Who Can Apply:
- 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.
