You have no doubt heard someone say, “There are thousands of scholarships worth billions of dollars out there just waiting for students to claim. …” At the University of South Carolina, we strongly encourage you to identify and pursue any scholarship opportunities that will help you pay for your annual educational expenses. And we can help you find them.
While these awards generally cannot be combined with one another (see Lieber Scholars Award and USC STEM Supplement below), they can be combined with a South Carolina state lottery-funded scholarship, making your USC education even more affordable. Please be sure to read the details to see which awards require separate applications.
The state awards several different types of lottery-funded scholarships to eligible South Carolina residents. Any one of the awards listed in this section can be added to any university-issued scholarship.
