Enhanced LIFE and Palmetto Fellows Scholarships

Enhanced LIFE Scholarship, Palmetto Fellows Scholarship and Hope Scholarship

The South Carolina General Assembly has passed legislation that enhances the value of LIFE and Palmetto Fellows awards for students majoring in math and science disciplines.  Also, the maximum award for the Hope Scholarship has been increased. These changes are effective beginning in the Fall of 2007.

Basic eligibility requirements for the enhanced awards are:

Palmetto Fellows – in addition to the base Palmetto Fellows requirements:

  • Recipients with at least 30 hours, and who, as a freshman,  earned 14 hours worth of math and science, and who are in math and science related majors will receive an additional amount of up to $3,300 for a maximum of $10,000.
  • Palmetto Fellows with at least 30 hours, but do not meet the conditions above, will receive an additional amount of up to $800 for a maximum of $7,500.
  • Entering freshmen, regardless of major, will receive a maximum of $6,700.

LIFE Scholarship – in addition to the base LIFE Scholarship requirements:

  • Recipients with over 30 hours, and who, as a freshman,  earned 14 hours worth of math and science, and who are in math and science related majors will receive an additional amount of up to $2,500 for a maximum of $7,500.
  • Entering freshmen, regardless of major, and upperclassmen who do not meet the above conditions, will receive a maximum award of $5,000.

SPECIAL NOTE:  GENERAL ENGINEERING (MAJOR CODE GENG) DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR THE PALMETTO FELLOWS OR LIFE ENHANCEMENTS.  ENGINEERING STUDENTS MUST BE IN ONE OF THE SPECIFIC DISCIPLINES LISTED BELOW.  ALSO, THE ENHANCEMENTS CANNOT BE EARNED MID-YEAR.
