Alumni Scholarships

Proudly offering scholarships since 1961

The Alumni Association has proudly offered scholarships since 1961. Some of our scholarships are open only to children and relatives of alumni, but others are open to all students. Scholarships are based on demonstrated leadership potential. 

Scholarship Applications

The deadline for all scholarship applications (including letters of recommendation) is February 1, unless otherwise noted. Applicants may request that individuals of their choice submit letters of recommendation supporting their application directly to the Alumni Association by email at or by mail to: Karen Jones, CofC Alumni Association, 66 George Street, Charleston, SC 29424.

New student scholarship applications can be submitted prior to receiving acceptance to the College of Charleston, as long as the prospective student has applied for admission for the upcoming term. Please contact the Alumni Office at (843) 953-5630 or if additional information is needed.

The College of Charleston has switched to an online scholarship awarding system called the Cougar Scholarship Awarding System (CSAS). CSAS will serve as the platform that students will use to apply for all privately funded scholarships. CSAS gives students access to all scholarships that are available to them through one easy application.
