COLUMBIA, S.C. — Extending its nearly seven decades-long relationship with South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU), Dominion Energy is renewing its $105,000 scholarship investment – 105 $1,000 scholarships for eligible students attending SCICU’s 21 member institutions in fall 2024.
“One of the highlights of my year is to receive thank-you notes from these well-deserving students who are among the best and the brightest in the communities we serve,” said Keller Kissam,” president of Dominion Energy South Carolina. “The consideration they demonstrate as they express their gratitude assures me that the future of South Carolina is very responsible, very prosperous and very bright.”
“On behalf of SCICU’s 21 member institutions and the students they serve, I want to thank Dominion Energy for their generosity and support of independent higher education in South Carolina,” said Jeff Perez, SCICU president and CEO. “We are deeply grateful for this continued scholarship support that helps students attend the private college or university of their choice in our state.”
The Dominion Energy scholarships are available to traditional-age students attending SCICU member colleges and universities who meet the following requirements:
- GPA 3.0 or higher
- Scholarship recipient or their parent(s)/guardian(s) are current Dominion Energy customers in South Carolina
- STEM-related majors are preferred but not required
Based on these eligibility requirements, financial aid directors at SCICU’s 21 member colleges and universities select students for the Dominion Energy scholarships.
“Dominion Energy’s relationship with SCICU began in 1956,” said Emma Reabold, SCICU vice president for development and campus services. “Dominion Energy’s total support to students at SCICU campuses now exceeds $1 million.”
“With this gift, Dominion Energy demonstrates its commitment to the future of South Carolina by fostering the students at SCICU member institutions who will become our state’s next generation of leaders,” said Perez.
