1795 Scholarship Fund supports USCB students at Historic Beaufort Campus 
The 1795 Scholarship fund is intended to support USC Beaufort’s growth in the Historic Beaufort Campus by providing scholarships each semester to eligible USCB Students. USCB traces its founding to the 1795 Charter for the Beaufort College. The 1795 Scholarship fund honors that 227-year heritage of higher education.

The number of scholarships has increased each year since the scholarship founding in 2020. Since then, the 1795 Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $200,000 in higher education funding to USCB students.

“We hope to be able to expand the scholarship program to include USCB students on the Bluffton and Hilton Head Campuses,” 1795 Scholarship Fund committee member Dick Stewart said in a news release.

Although the application period for the Fall 2022 semester is now closed, all students interested in attending or transferring to USCB are encouraged to apply online at 1795Scholarship.com. Applications received between now and November will be considered for the Spring 2023 Semester.
