Why? 

SRSCRO wants to invest in you! Both the Savannah River Site (SRS) and the South Carolina Higher Education Study Committee (HESC) realize that over the years 2013-2030, there will be approximately 553,884 new jobs created in South Carolina, and that 52% of these jobs will require a higher education ("Competing Through Knowledge," Darla Moore School of Business, 2013). SRSCRO anticipates that 50% of the SRS workforce will retire over the next few years and desires to help develop the next generation.


How do I apply?

Please note, these scholarships are competitive in nature, and a new application is required each year. (e.g. If you receive a WORC Scholarship during your sophomore year, you still must reapply your junior year.)
