College Scholarships

College Scholarships

Several scholarships are available for qualifying South Carolina high school students.

South Carolina also awards need-based grants to qualifying SC residents who attend eligible SC colleges. A student must apply by June 30 each year in order to have the possibility of receiving a grant for the coming school year.

Many needs-based scholarships are based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available here. High school seniors should submit FAFSA applications beginning Oct. 1. Answers about the FAFSA process are here.
