South Carolina Higher Education Tuition Grants Commission
The actual amount of each student's grant is determined by a combination of family resources, the cost of attendance of the independent college selected, and the amount of funding available. Based on the award amounts from the previous academic year, average awards were for aproximately $2,600 annually. Awards are renewable for up to three additional years provided the student makes satisfactory progress towards graduation, applies prior to the June 30 deadline annually, continues to demonstrate financial need, meets all other eligibility requirements, and provided funds are available.
Approximately 14,200 awards are offered annually.
