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 Study Abroad Office, allows up to $2000 for funding a Maymester or summer study abroad experience. More information can be found on the SAO's scholarship page.

Only available to Capstone Fellows, this $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 professional membership fees.

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 read our FAQ or contact Katie Zimmerle.

Fall Deadline: Oct. 25, 2019, by 5:00pm.
Grant Duration: Fall 2019 through the end of Summer 2020.

Spring Deadline: Feb 28, 2020, by 5:00pm.
Grant Duration: Spring 2020 through the end of Fall 2020.

How to Apply:
Starting on Monday, January 13th, students will be able to apply online.  Applications will be evaluated by a proposal essay and funding outline. 


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.
