What does USC Upstate mean to you?
USC Upstate is the starting point for the rest of my life. The things I have learned and experienced at Upstate go beyond the classroom and that is more than I could have ever hoped for.

This scholarship will impact my life by opening more doors academically. This scholarship is proof that hard work does pay off and I can’t even describe how wonderful that feeling is.
