The South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) is pleased to announce its annual Board of Directors Scholarship Program. This program awards $2,500 scholarships on an annual basis to graduating high school seniors who are residents from counties chosen by lot by the Association. Since Richland County was selected in the draw for 2021, one scholarship will be awarded to a resident of Richland County.

Applicants for the SCAC Board of Directors Scholarship must be planning to attend a South Carolina college/university or two-year technical college in the fall. All applicants must complete an application form and write an essay on their aspirations and goals. Two letters of recommendation are also required. Scholarship notices and application forms have been sent to Richland County high schools and students may apply online via http://www.sccounties.org/scac-scholarships. The recipient will be selected by an SCAC Scholarship Selection Committee in April.
