Each year, gifts to the The Palmetto College provide an immediate and important benefit to the college by funding student scholarships and awards. Collectively, your gifts — of any amount and designation — are significant. You invest in the Palmetto College with a strategy that meets your priorities and fund initiatives that are most important to you.
The University of South Carolina's Palmetto College recognize Faculty and Staff for outstanding scholarship, outstanding service, and outstanding teaching. Palmetto College offers the John J. Duffy Teaching Award, the Chris P. Plyler Excellence in Service Award, and the Denise R. Shaw Excellence in Scholarship Award to recognize outstanding faculty at the Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Sumter and Union campuses.
Each year, we honor our outstanding student leaders for their achievements in leadership and Academic Excellence. The Palmetto College also offers a variety of scholarships. The Palmetto College Scholarship Committee is responsible for selecting recipients. In addition, each campus as well as USC Fort Jackson have other scholarships available to students.
