COLUMBIA, SC — SCICU colleges and universities are welcoming a record number of freshmen at the start of the 2018-19 academic year. Many students are still looking to wrap up their financial aid packages, and SCICU still has opportunities for you to help. The deadline for SCICU’s 2018-19 academic year fundraising campaign is August 31. Please help us make these last ELEVEN days count with a donation that will help students at SCICU colleges and universities.
Your contribution to SCICU’s scholarships and financial assistance programs can mean the difference between students being able to continue classes, completing their degrees, or, putting it quite bluntly, dropping out of college.
100% of any funds that you donate to SCICU are dedicated to the support of the twenty member colleges and universities and their students. Your generous donation now can help support the following programs at SCICU colleges and universities during the upcoming 2018-19 academic year:
- Discretionary Scholarships (including small emergency grants)
- SCICU Named Scholars Program
- McLean-Smith SCICU Student of the Year Scholarship
- Undergraduate Student/Faculty Research Programs
- Independent College and University Week
- Excellence In Teaching Faculty Awards
Won’t you help today with a donation towards scholarships and financial assistance for students at our independent colleges and universities?
August 31 is SCICU’s deadline for scholarships and financial assistance programs for the 2018-19 academic year.
Please know that gifts and donations of all sizes are welcome and are greatly appreciated. Many times small grants via our Discretionary Scholarships program can make the critical difference in helping financially-stressed students stay in school and finish their degree. A number of students attending SCICU member colleges and universities are the first in their families to go to college, and their financial challenges can be overwhelming.
Making a gift to SCICU has never been easier. Simply visit the SCICU website (scicu.org/donate) and follow the directions to make an online gift through PayPal. This link also supports gifts made via your major credit card.
