In a new initiative to create a more inclusive Carolina, the Moore School, has developed the Rising Scholars Program. The program is designed to connect underserved students pursuing degrees within the Moore School with key opportunities and resources on campus. Incoming freshmen selected for the program will join a cohort of driven individuals actively seeking to further develop the skills necessary to become successful leaders.
As students progress through the various stages of their university experience — from freshman year to graduation — they will be given unique access to personal, professional and academic mentoring. In fostering a diverse and inclusive environment where students can explore all that the University of South Carolina has to offer, the Rising Scholars Program seeks to develop a strong community of scholars with a solid foundation for success.
