2016-2017 Scholarship Recipients

Each year the University of South Carolina Aiken Alumni Association awards two types of scholarships. One is the Alumni Student Involvement Scholarship and the other is the Alumni Legacy Scholarship.

Scholarship dollars are used to help students reach their academic goals, and are raised by the efforts of dedicated Alumni each year through the USC Aiken Alumni Golf Classic, the Pacer Polo Silent Auction, Midlands’ Chapter 5K Run and the generosity of many alumni and friends.
