Columbia College student Andrea Choice, a Biochemistry major from Moncks Corner, SC, has been selected to receive a Council for Independent College (CIC)/UPS Scholarship provided by South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, Inc. and its national partner, the CIC in Washington, D.C.
Nationally, CIC, through the CIC/UPS Educational Endowment, provided more than $1.5 million in student scholarships to support student success at private colleges and universities. This year, the SC Independent Colleges & Universities (SCICU) awarded $60,000 in CIC/UPS Scholarships to 20 low-income, first-generation, minority, and new American students at private institutions across South Carolina.
“The UPS Foundation has been a long-time and generous supporter of independent college higher education, not only in South Carolina but nationwide,” said Jeff Perez, President & CEO of SCICU. “We are very appreciative of their support and recognize that the lives of many worthy students have been changed for the better.”Back to News
