The Spartanburg County Foundation Scholarship Program
The recipients of The Foundation Scholarship Program must be graduates of Spartanburg County High Schools and must attend Converse College, Spartanburg Methodist College, Spartanburg Community College, the University of South Carolina Upstate, or Wofford College.  The colleges choose the recipients for this award.   If the recipient continues their education they will receive the scholarship award every year until they graduate.  This award will not follow the recipient to another school if they transfer.

For more information about the Foundation Scholarship Program, please contact your Financial Aid representative.
