South Carolina Honors College

Recognize Your Investments

We remain committed to providing the best of a small college education in the heart of a comprehensive research university. Your gifts and support allow us to continue to broaden our students’ horizons, empower them to embrace new ideas and carry them beyond the Horseshoe gates to create positive change in the world.

Each year, gifts to the Honors College Carolina Fund provide an immediate and important benefit to the school by funding undergraduate student scholarships, student study abroad, experiential learning opportunities, faculty and student research, and other strategic initiatives. Collectively, your gifts — of any amount and designation — are significant.

Young Alumni Annual Fundraiser

The Honors College operates an annual young alumni giving drive in the fall supporting a key initiative for the college that year. In 2019, our young alumni gave to fund a student’s study abroad experience. 

Special Thanks

Our gratitude is extended to the Robert and Janice McNair Foundation for their substantial support of the McNair Scholars scholarship program and to the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation for their substantial support of the Stamps Scholars program.

We also want to thank all Honors College staff who give back to the university and support initiatives across campus.
