Honors Program

USCB is pleased to announce the Beaufort College Honors Program (BCH) in Biology, Nursing and Interdisciplinary open majors*. BCH scholars will receive an annual $4,000 Honors scholarship ($2,000 per semester) in addition to other scholarship monies earned. Scholars remaining in good Honors Program standing (full-time status, first two years residence on the Beaufort Campus for Biology and Nursing, first year residence for other degrees,* and 3.0 GPA) can maintain the scholarship for up to four years.

Why 'Beaufort College' for USCB's Honors program?

The legacy of Beaufort College to the region and USCB is extensive and deep-rooted. Beaufort College was an elite school. "It became a feeder institution for the South Carolina College and the elite colleges of the North, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Columbia. Twenty-five young men who attended preparatory school here went on to Harvard College." (Walter Edgar, "Celebrating Higher Education in Beaufort, 1795-2010," Virtue, Liberty, Science, p. 47).
