COLUMBIA, SC — With under 45 days remaining in SCICU’s 2017-18 fiscal year (ends August 31), your help is needed in providing scholarships and financial assistance for students attending independent colleges and universities in South Carolina.
With increased pressure on federal and state funding, supporting higher education opportunities available through South Carolina’s independent colleges and universities is more important than ever.
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:
- 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
- Discretionary Scholarships (including small emergency grants)
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.
