COLUMBIA, SC — SCICU is very pleased to announce that due to recent policy changes at the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC), the UPS Scholarship Program administered through CIC has been expanded to include five additional colleges at SCICU. Students at Allen University, Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College, and Voorhees College are now eligible to receive the annual award provided through CIC by the UPS Foundation.
Thanks to a generous $38 million endowment established by UPS, all 20 members of SCICU will receive one $2,600 UPS Scholarship from CIC each year. SCICU pays CIC $635 per college to participate in the UPS Scholarship Program, so the $2,600 award at each college represents a 400 percent “return on investment”. Since the beginning of the UPS Scholarship Program, SCICU member colleges have received almost $1.2 million through the UPS Scholarship Program.
