What does USC Upstate mean to you?
Upstate has provided me with a total learning experience. The Mary Black School of Nursing is exceptional in providing knowledge about nursing skills. Not only has USC Upstate provided me with a wonderful education, it has also helped me learn about the world as well. USC Upstate is very diverse and has prepared for life after graduation.

It is a great honor to be awarded this scholarship. This scholarship will assist me with various expenses associated with my education, such as textbooks and housing. I am very thankful to be a recipient of the College Pointe Endowed Scholarship.
