Scholarship For Female Academic Athletes Majoring in Education

The South Carolina Coaches Association of Women’s Sports (SCCAWS) annually offers a scholarship to an incoming female college freshman from South Carolina.  The scholarship is a one-time monetary award presented to a student who plans to major in education.

  • Recommendations from guidance counselor and two teachers
  • Extra-curricular activities involving athletic and non-athletic participation (must be an eligible high school participant on one or more athletic teams).
  • Enrolling female college freshman who plans to major in education.
  • A one-page essay (in the student’s handwriting) on the topic “Why I Want to Be a Teacher and Where I Envision Myself in the Teaching Field in Ten Years.”
  • SAT – minimum composite score of 1000 and/or ACT – minimum composite score of 22
