Gamecock Legacy: The Legacy Scholarship
The University of South Carolina Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship program was established in 1988 to encourage the academically talented children of the University’s alumni to attend their parent’s alma mater.
Legacy means everything at South Carolina. While you’re a student for a short time, you’re a Gamecock for a lifetime. Our proud Gamecock alumni family is more than 300,000 strong. And it’s special when their children and grandchildren join in the tradition.
We award more than $120,000 annually to our Legacy Scholars, valued at $2,000 over four years for each recipient.
Your gifts will have a direct impact in the educational pursuit of future Gamecocks. Be a legacy builder and make your gift on May 18.
“Receiving the Legacy Scholarship has helped relieve the financial pressure of school.
I was able to focus on my studies and achieve my goal of making the Dean’s List in my first semester of college.”
