“Thank you so much for the Underrepresented Student Scholarship! I can’t wait to use
the money to further my academic goals. I am so blessed to be able to attend the University
of South Carolina and contribute to its growing diversity. This scholarship truly
means a lot to me since I am paying for a portion of my education myself.”
