High school graduates looking to pursue post-secondary education in the United States particularly in the state of South Carolina share difficulty of expense when it comes to education. Scholarships, grants, loans, and aids can only suffice so much, where most of the students are left out. For the same reason, a majority of the states in the country provide their own scholarships and aids for the resident students who are in a desperate need for it.


Resident students from South Carolina have the opportunity to avail a variety of state-funded scholarships, grants, and financial aid programs exclusively for them to reach the levels of success and professional advancements. These scholarships and grants are to support the in-state students in their pursuit of a college degree also promoting sports, music and all other forms of art and skill. The South Carolina Commission on higher education provides valuable information on the state’s university regulations, scholarship schemes, student loans, and financial aid conditions.

Steps involved in getting a scholarship in South Carolina:

  • Official High school transcripts

  • Meeting the required GPA

  • Letters of Recommendation

  • A Scholarship Application

  • A completed FAFSA

  • Demonstration of financial need

So, why does a state provide exclusive resident scholarships you ask? Here’s why!

Every state in the United States of America offers a range of need-based and merit-based scholarships and grants for the in-state students. These scholarships are specifically designed to make college education more feasible and accessible to every student of a particular state. Similarly, the state of South Carolina also funds and grants a lot of money to its students on a yearly basis. In this year alone South Carolina’s Apprenticeship Carolina program has served more than 26,000 students and has a 91% job placement rate for graduates.
