The University 101 Scholarship recognizes and rewards undergraduate students who have unmet financial need and who have made major contributions to the learning environment and community within the University 101 classroom and who have incorporated the course’s ideals and values into their academic and co-curricular experiences outside the classroom.
To be considered for the scholarship, students must have a minimum overall 3.5 GPA, be currently enrolled full-time at USC, and submit a complete scholarship application.
Recipients will be awarded a $500 scholarship to be distributed evenly to University of South Carolina tuition and fee payment over the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters ($250.00 applied to each semester). Out-of-state recipients may also receive reduced tuition rates for the 2023-24 academic year.
