Seventy-four students have been named 2012 Magellan Scholars at the University of South Carolina.

Magellan Scholars are selected by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of Undergraduate Research and are paired with a faculty mentor to conduct research in an area of their choosing.

Created in 2005, the Magellan Scholar program enriches the academic experience of USC's undergraduates through research opportunities in all disciplines from science, technology, and medicine, to theatre, music, and art.
