The South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) is pleased to announce its 2015 scholarship programs.

Each year, SCAC’s Presidential Scholarship Program awards one $2,500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior who is a resident of the same county as our SCAC President. Since Horry County Council Member James R. Frazier is the current SCAC President, our 2015 Presidential Scholarship will be awarded to an Horry County resident.

This year, SCAC’s Board of Directors Scholarship Program will also award $2,500 scholarships to four graduating high school seniors who are residents of counties chosen by lot by the Association. Chester, Greenville, Hampton, and Marlboro counties were selected in the draw, and a Board of Directors Scholarship will be awarded to a resident of each county.

Scholarship applicants must be planning to attend a South Carolina college/university or two-year technical college in the fall of 2015. The scholarship checks will be sent directly to the schools to which the recipients have been accepted. All applicants must complete an application form and write an essay on their aspirations and goals. Two letters of recommendation are also required. Scholarship recipients will be selected by SCAC Scholarship Selection Committees during the month of April, with announcements in May.

Scholarship applications and instructions are available via www.sccounties.org/scac-scholarships. Students may apply online or send their application via U.S. Mail. For more information, please contact Leslie Jennings via email to  ljennings@scac.sc or by calling 1-800-922-6081, ext. 335.
