COLUMBIA — The James F. Byrnes Scholarship Program was established in 1949 to assist young South Carolinians who had lost one or both parents to obtain a college education.
The annual award of $3,500 is applied for each year of a four-year bachelor’s degree program. The scholarship is renewed annually contingent upon the recipient’s maintenance of satisfactory academic standing, need for financial assistance, and participation in Byrnes Scholar activities.
Students may visit the James F. Byrnes Foundation website at www.byrnesscholars.org to obtain an application packet.
Applications must be submitted after before February 6.
The James F. Byrnes Foundation Scholarships are living memorials to James Francis Byrnes and his wife, Maude Busch Byrnes. Since 1949 the Byrnes Foundation has awarded 1,090 scholarships.
