The Abney Foundation Scholarship Programs

The Abney Foundation has established scholarship endowments at fourteen colleges and universities across the state of South Carolina. Over $27,000,000 has been awarded to 12,865 Abney Scholars, including 568 students for the academic year 2013-14. The combined endowment balances exceed $38,475,000.


The Abney Foundation makes grants to fund these endowments; however the schools administer the scholarship programs themselves. You may contact the financial aid department at the school you're interested in to see if you qualify.
