No. Students must graduate from a traditional public or public charter high school.

The Meeting Street Scholarship Fund is designed to make access to college attainable with existing South Carolina scholarship programs, and is not eligible to be used outside the state.

Students must retain the SC LIFE or Palmetto Fellows Scholarship and continue to receive a Pell Grant annually in order to maintain eligibility.

Opportunities and Requirements

The amount of the scholarship award will be based on the direct costs billed by the college, and the student’s funding gap after other scholarship and grant awards are applied.

The direct costs are determined by the college, to include tuition, fees, on-campus housing and meal plans.

If the funding gap is greater than $10,000, the full amount of the Meeting Street Scholarship will be awarded.

If the funding gap is less than $10,000, the Meeting Street Scholarship Fund will provide up to the remaining amount owed to the college.

There is no limit on the number of eligible students who can earn the scholarship. If a partner school district prepares students more effectively, then we will see an increase in the number of students who earn the Meeting Street Scholarship.

The Meeting Street Scholarship Fund has no restrictions about what a successful applicant studies or chooses to major in.

The Scholarship Fund is just beginning, and the initial priority is to help hard-working students access the resources to attend college. There may be future opportunities or program requirements for learning, networking, and support available for Meeting Street Scholarship Fund recipients.
