SC students offered $966 million in scholarships

Aug 3, 2011 10:25:00 AM - thestate.com
The South Carolina Education Department says the class of 2011 was offered a record $966 million in college scholarships.

That tops the amount offered to last year's public high school seniors by $49 million.

Education Department officials said Wednesday that the total brings the amount offered over the past five years to more than $4 billion.

The total includes scholarships not accepted by students. It represents all scholarships offered to students as they considered which two- or four-year college to attend.

The agency estimates 90 percent of the scholarships are academic and 10 percent are athletic. Lottery-backed scholarships account for about 20 percent of the total.
