A robust scholarship enrichment program – from financial assistance and awards to study abroad and undergraduate research experiences – ensures the Honors College continues an upward trajectory.

Scholarships facilitate the recruitment and retention of highly engaged, intelligent and diverse students from across the world to the Honors College. These top students set the intellectual standard and increase the national recognition of the College of Charleston as a whole. In fact, Honors College students add 20 points to the overall freshman class SAT score and outpace the general student body in both first-year retention and four-year graduation rates.

A continued investment in merit scholarships and a new focus on programming and enrichment activities will heighten the Honors College’s offerings, create more scholarship opportunities and contribute to the elevation of the College’s national distinction and reputation.
