Gamecock Guarantee

At South Carolina, we believe our historic gates should be open to all academically qualified students – regardless of their family’s finances. Gamecock Guarantee is a financial- and academic-support program for outstanding, low-income, first-generation college students from South Carolina. By supporting this program, you are creating pathways to a college degree for promising Gamecocks.

Student Health Services Fund

South Carolina strives to create a healthy campus environment where all Gamecocks can live, learn, work and play. Help us provide holistic and high-quality patient-centered health care that supports students' success and advances their well-being.

Emergency Fund

This fund provides limited, one-time financial assistance to enrolled students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardship related to an emergency situation. Your gift helps provide peace of mind to Gamecocks in need and ensures their academic careers remain on track, regardless of their circumstances.

Parents Annual Fund

Who knows students better than their families? This fund allows families to show their support for the university and enhance their students' academic environment with a convenient, tax-deductible giving opportunity.

Student Life Fund

Through Student Life programming, students discover their passions and strengths, feel more connected to campus, and gain leadership experience that helps them find internships and jobs. This fund supports student organizations and campus activities that encourage a better college experience for students while helping them make friends, have fun and prepare for success beyond college.

Education Abroad Support Fund

Help make international education opportunities possible for all students regardless of their academic, personal or financial backgrounds.

University-wide Undergraduate Scholarships
