University and Non-University Scholarship Opportunties

Application periods vary depending on the scholarship.

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.

Non-institutional scholarships can be based on a variety of criteria including but not limited to academic merit, financial need, community service, area of study, organizational affiliation, place of residence or employment, and ethnic or religious background.

In addition to HRSM scholarships, scholarships are also available through the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Foundation. If you have questions about applying for AHLEF scholarships, contact Georgia Petritsis in the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management for more information.

The Department of Retailing is one of only 10 universities in the United States invited to participate in the Regent’s University London Summer Study Abroad Fashion Program. Regent's University London scholarships are available to HRSM Department of Retailing students via the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA). Scholarship information is available here.
