South Carolina's independent colleges and universities are asking for your help in conveying our gratitute for state supported scholarships and grants for higher education.
Without scholarships and grants, many students could not afford the cost of higher education. South Carolina’s independent colleges and universities would like you to join us in showing our grateful appreciation to members of the General Assembly for their support of merit-based scholarships and need-based grants.
We encourage you to write a personal letter to your state legislators and thank them for their support. Encourage them to invest in the future of South Carolina by funding to the fullest extent possible scholarships like Palmetto Fellows, LIFE, HOPE, and Higher Education Tuition Grants. Regular increases to these programs are needed to keep current with the rising costs of higher education.
