What does USC Upstate mean to you?
USC Upstate has a great atmosphere to its student and faculty community. USC Upstate is a place that inspires students to succeed, not only while they are attending the University, but also inspires students to succeed beyond college in the workforce. Even though the University is small, yet growing at the same time, I have found so many opportunities and ways to get involved while being a student here. The University has grown tremendously since I was a freshman, and I can’t wait to see future expansion of the institution in the upcoming years. USC Upstate has become a place that I can call my second home.

The scholarship will impact my life by providing me with additional funding to help me pay for my tuition during the fall semester. In doing this, this scholarship will help me to get closer to my career dream of one day becoming a dentist.
