National Fellowships and Scholar Programs


Our students are consistently selected as national fellowship finalists and scholars, bringing considerable esteem and distinction to the university. Top Scholars are also exceeding our expectations in a variety of ways. Your support helps students compete for prestigious national fellowships and provides enrichment activities for Top Scholars.  

Give to Support our Students

Since the Fellowships Office was established in 1994, Carolina students have earned 1,125 prestigious, merit-based scholarships and fellowships — including Rhodes, Marshall, Gates, Fulbright, Truman and Hollings — totaling more than $38 million for advanced academic study.  

Our goal is to prevent financial limits from discouraging USC students in their pursuit of national fellowships. Your support can have a monumental impact on the academic success of some of our brightest students at the University of South Carolina. Faculty and staff may designate their annual Family Fund gift to support either fund noted below.


You Can Help
