USC UPSTATE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIP was initiated by the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association of USC Upstate to honor USC Upstate
students of alums. The Board is convinced the scholarship is a perfect incentive for motivating the student body to aim towards excellence in their academics and
it gives our alumni a reason to give to their alma mater. The recipient must be a child of a USC Upstate graduate, a resident of South Carolina and have a cumulative
USC Upstate GPA of 3.0 or better. The student must also list collegiate/community organizations, activities and committees to which they have belonged as well
as write a short paragraph explaining their need for the scholarship and why they would benefit from being awarded a scholarship.
