The South Carolina Association of Counties (SCAC) is pleased to announce its annual Board of Directors Scholarship Program. This program awards $2,500 scholarships on an annual basis to graduating high school seniors who are residents of counties chosen by lot by the association. Since Florence County was selected in the 2017 draw, one scholarship will be awarded to a resident of Florence County.
Applicants for the SCAC Board of Directors Scholarship must be planning to attend a South Carolina college/university or two-year technical college in the fall. All applicants must complete an application form and write an essay on their aspirations and goals. Two letters of recommendation are also required. Scholarship notices and application forms have been sent to all Florence County high schools, and students may apply online via http://www.sccounties.org/scac-scholarships. The recipient will be selected by an SCAC Scholarship Selection Committee in April.
Chartered on June 22, 1967, SCAC is the only statewide organization representing county government in South Carolina. Governed by a 29-member Board of Directors composed of county officials from across the state, SCAC is a non-profit and nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving county government in South Carolina.
