Eligibility Requirements: Due to COVID-19, requirements for the Legacy Scholarship have been adjusted for the 2021 incoming freshman class.
This award is exclusive to incoming freshmen—NO exceptions. At least one parent, legal guardian or grandparent must be a graduate of a UofSC campus and a current member of the University of South Carolina Alumni Association. To be awarded the scholarship, applicants must have applied for admission to South Carolina and have been accepted.
In-state applicants must present the following: • Weighted GPA of at least 3.0 from an official high-school transcript (as calculated by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions)
Out-of-state applicants must present the following: • Weighted GPA of at least 3.5 from an official high-school transcript (as calculated by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions) Additional Information: Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis and must meet the requirements noted above. Due to a limited number of scholarships available each year, not every applicant who meets the minimum requirements will receive the scholarship. Out-of-state recipients may also be eligible to receive a tuition rate reduction. Tuition rate deduction is received from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Scholarship renewal is automatic as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA and full-time student status and the sponsor’s alumni association membership is current.
Number of awardees is based on annual budget.
