Swanson, Huge and Newell Scholarships

Swanson Scholars

The Swanson Family Annual Scholarship program is a merit award for select students accepted into the William Aiken Fellows Society for Fall 2014.  The Swanson scholarships are made possible by a generous gift from College of Charleston alumni Steve ’89 and Emily ’89 Swanson.  Swanson Scholars participate in a rigorous academic curriculum and a variety of summer enrichment programs, leadership courses, one-on-one faculty mentoring, public service activities in the United States or abroad, as well as research or business internship opportunities across the globe.  The actual amount of the scholarship will vary depending on the student's academic record, performance during the interview process, residency status, and cost of tuition and fees. 

Applications to the Honors College and all supporting materials are due by December 1. Scholarships are based on your Honors College application. Accepted students will be notified before the December holidays and will be invited to attend Interview Weekend in late January-early February.
