About Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarships reflect a donor’s commitment to support a scholarship in a specific area or for a specific purpose with a permanent fund. Contributions are invested to ensure the scholarship retains its value in perpetuity, and the scholarships created by the endowment are funded through the income generated by the endowment.

Scholarships may be endowed at USC Aiken with a minimum gift of $10,000. Donors may also contribute to existing endowed scholarship funds.

Giving to USC Aiken affects not only our students, but also our community and the larger world.  As a public comprehensive institution, our mission is to prepare students for success by challenging them to think critically and creatively, to communicate effectively, to learn independently, and to acquire breadth and depth of interdisciplinary knowledge. Gifts contribute to student success and help the University prepare them for careers in a diverse global environment. Today’s successful students are equipped to take their place as tomorrow’s leaders.

Scholarships, program accounts, and endowed chairs are more than just dollars and cents. They are a way for donors to share their personal beliefs, characteristics, and aspirations with students, faculty and staff, and they are a way to give back to the university that gave so much to them.
