What does USC Upstate mean to you?
USC Upstate means a lot to me. The teachers are wonderful and are always willing to help. They always seem to be in a good mood and will discuss any problem you may be having. Upstate has provided wonderful facilities and professors to help me succeed while I am here in school.

This scholarship will impact my life tremendously by helping me with my tuition cost during these hard economic times. With this financial support I will be able to continue my educational pursuit in early childhood education here at USC Upstate.
