Capstone Scholars

Grants and Scholarships

Sometimes, all it takes to reach your next goal is a helping hand. We offer grant opportunities that might just make the difference.


Offered through the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Magellan Apprentice grant supports Capstone Scholars in their pursuit of research, scholarship and creative activities. The award funds up to $1,000 towards salary, materials, supplies and/or travel.

This financial award, offered through the Education Abroad Office, provides up to $1,500 towards tuition costs for a  Maymester or summer study abroad experience. More information can be found on the Education Abroad Office's scholarship page.

Only available to Capstone Fellows, this up-to $500 financial award helps students achieve their next steps after graduating from UofSC. This grant can cover a variety of opportunities including conference fees, printing costs, and even standardized testing costs. Capstone Fellows are able to receive the grant one time.

Please note that the grant can be provided only as a reimbursement for most expenses, rather than up front; please plan your finances accordingly. We also ask for clear, legible proof of purchase in order to fulfill the grant. If you have additional questions, please email

The Capstone Scholars program invites students based on the presence of a university scholarship. These scholarships are granted and revoked independently of our office, and there is no single "Capstone Scholarship." As such, graduating or withdrawing from our program does not necessitate a loss of scholarship.

National Fellowships

If you are a current Scholar and are interested in other funding opportunities, we work closely with National Fellowships and Scholar Programs, a resource on campus designed to connect students to hundreds of esteemed, national-level fellowships and scholarships. They make it easy to learn more about the application process online, and you can also make an appointment.  

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
