The Graduate School works to advance the reputation of the University of South Carolina as a top-ranked research institution through the recruitment of stellar students to our doctoral programs.
We fund strategic awards and design collaborative initiatives to enhance the professional and academic development of our students. Most of our fellowships are designed to supplement the funding given to outstanding incoming graduate students by academic programs across the university. This funding is crucial in helping us compete for elite students who have been admitted to other top institutions. These fellowships are often the reason why a student chooses to enroll in a doctoral program at the University of South Carolina over many of our regional and national competitors.
Our aim is to expand the impact on the research and teaching mission of the university by increasing the number of fellowships we award each year. Your gift will have a direct impact on our ability to recruit new scholars and provide them with meaningful professional development, student services, community and mentorship throughout their time at South Carolina.
Your gift will play a vital role in enriching the graduate student experience and ensuring the competitiveness of our graduate programs. Thank you for considering The Graduate School and our incredible students as you Give 4 Garnet.
