UofSC doubles number of Stamps Scholars, its highest scholarship award

The University of South Carolina has a long history of attracting the best and brightest students to the university and its top-ranked South Carolina Honors College with significant funded scholarships. Five exemplary out-of-state students will join those ranks with the help of a gift from the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation, founded by Penny and E. Roe Stamps IV of Miami.
