Make Your Gift Online

You can make your gift to USC Aiken online through the USC Aiken Online Giving site!

Scholarships make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students. The Advancement staff can work with you to give to an existing scholarship or begin a new scholarship.

Endowed scholarships create a permanent fund. Contributions are invested to ensure the scholarship retains its value in perpetuity, and the scholarships created by the endowment are funded through the income generated by the endowment.

Annual scholarships reflect a donor’s commitment to support a scholarship for a specific number of years and choose the criteria in which recipients are chosen.

You may also choose to contribute to an existing scholarship fund that matches your passion. Contact Mary Driscoll at or 803-641-3448.
