SmartState Chairs

Since its inception in 2005, the SmartState Program has brought the knowledge and expertise of 43 world-class scientists to South Carolina. Appropriated South Carolina Education Lottery funds and legislatively mandated matching non-state funds provide support for hiring world-class researchers who serve as endowed chairs of the centers. The Office of the Provost nominates faculty to be a SmartState Endowed Chair.
