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.

You may also choose to contribute to an existing scholarship fund that matches your passion.

Giving to USC Aiken impacts every student at the university. 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.

Your gift contributes to student success and helps the University prepare them for careers in a diverse global environment.

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.

A list of all endowed scholarships will be available soon.
