USC Salkehatchie values academic achievement and attracts some of the brightest students from our region to the campus each year.

Top students considering USC Salkehatchie are invited to apply for the Salkehatchie Scholars full tuition scholarship. Because Salkehatchie Scholars is a competitive program, not all students who apply will be selected. If you believe you qualify for Salkehatchie Scholars and wish to be considered for this honor, complete the supplementary application and submit it as part of the regular USC Salkehatchie Scholarship Application.

To be eligible for consideration, students must

  • be S.C. residents
  • have graduated from an in-state high school within a year of their planned college entry
  • must have earned least a 3.0 high school GPA
