About Annual Scholarships

Annual scholarships reflect a donor’s one-year commitment to support a scholarship in a specific area or for a specific purpose. In order to offset student fees and administrative costs, $500 is the suggested minimum level for an annual scholarship.

Donors may give to an annual scholarship for more than one year. USC Aiken is very grateful to those donors who have consistently supported annual student scholarships for many years.

Giving to USC Aiken affects not only our students, but also our community and the larger world. As a public comprehensive institution, our mission is to prepare students for success by challenging them to think critically and creatively, to communicate effectively, to learn independently, and to acquire breadth and depth of interdisciplinary knowledge. Gifts contribute to student success and help the University prepare them for careers in a diverse global environment. Today’s successful students are equipped to take their place as tomorrow’s leaders.

Scholarships, program accounts, and endowed chairs are more than just dollars and cents. They are a way for donors to share their personal beliefs, characteristics, and aspirations with students, faculty and staff, and they are a way to give back to the university that gave so much to them.
