SPARTANBURG — The Spartanburg Community College Foundation has awarded more than $80,000 in private scholarships to 53 students for the 2018-2019 academic year.

“Awarding scholarships is one of the most worthwhile efforts of the Foundation as it gives us an opportunity to directly impact a student and their educational journey,” explains Bea Walters Smith, Executive Director of Advancement and the SCC Foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of donors and many supporters, the SCC Foundation scholarship program is evolving.”

The on-line scholarship application (www.sccsc.edu/scc-scholarships) is accepted January 1 thru June 30 each year and awards are made in August for the upcoming academic year.
