Scholarships are available at both the university and department level. University scholarships are awarded to both S.C. residents and nonresidents by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions based on a variety of eligibility factors.
Departmental scholarships are available thanks to the generous support of alumni and friends, and are awarded to current undergraduate and graduate College of Pharmacy students. These scholarships are primarily merit-based, but often financial need and other special circumstances are considered.
To be considered for a scholarship, students must complete an online application every year.
The application is accessible each spring, and it is due by the deadline set annually
by the college. Scholarship recipients are chosen between June and July.
