Capstone Scholars

Dear Students and Parents:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Capstone Scholars Program at the University of South Carolina. I have served now for four years as Faculty Principal and I have to admit that this has been one of the most joyful experiences I have had in academia as this program has allowed me the opportunity to meet fantastic students that have great potential. Through our program students are challenged, both inside and outside the classroom, to become the best that they can be as they increase their self-esteem and confidence, develop life-long relationships with both students and faculty, and have FUN!

Our climbing tower excursions, Hot Cookie Friday’s, service opportunities, study abroad and undergraduate research experiences and grants, and speaker/lecture series are but a few of the events that help our students to get to know each other, but more importantly themselves. We make it a priority to provide support while having as much "face time" with the students as possible. We strive to make the Capstone Scholars Program a place where students feel like they are connected to the University of South Carolina and the community.

One of our recent initiatives includes providing an opportunity for parents and University of South Carolina Capstone Scholars alum to directly support our goal in developing undergraduate research grants, study abroad grants, special program funding, and special needs for Capstone Scholars. I would like to direct you to the link at the bottom of our page to find out more how you can "Support Capstone Scholars".

I look forward to meeting and greeting our prospective students, and families, as we put together our Capstone Scholars Class of 2015. Feel free to call and/or email us if you have any questions.
