    This scholarship was established to honor Dr. William A. Mould’s vision, campus leadership and perseverance which led to the creation of the South Carolina College, eventually named the South Carolina Honors College. He led the South Carolina College and later served as Dean from 1979 to 1994.

    This scholarship was established to honor Dr. Peter C. Sederberg  and his 36 year commitment to the University of South Carolina where he spent almost 30 of them creating and building the South Carolina Honors College. Serving as dean for a decade, his devotion to the Honors College was unparalleled.

    The Honors College strives to offer outstanding academic opportunity to a diverse student body. Our commitment to diversity is founded in the idea that intellectual, social and cultural diversity are essential components of the educational process. As part of our efforts to create a diverse student body, the Peter C. Sederberg Endowed Scholarship was created.
