The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education understands the challenges that high school and first-year college students face! Considering the many deadlines, scholarship applications, FAFSA information, and more, new students in higher education can easily feel overwhelmed. To facilitate a smooth transition, the CHE has selected students to guide others across South Carolina. These students are our College Process Ambassadors. The Ambassadors are highlighting college application and success resources to support the upcoming class of high school graduates and college students. They are actively assisting others via community outreach. They also participate in and promote events related to College Application Month, College Goal SC, and College Decision Month. Their content is shared on SCCanGo platforms, which encourages students, families, and communities to apply and get ready for college!
The students are high school seniors, expecting to graduate by the end of the academic year with postsecondary educational plans. These students will obtain up to $1,000 in scholarship funds, personalized support and feedback from the SC Commission on Higher Education, and professional training on how to support other students during the college application journey. For more information about the program, reach out to Dr. Gerrick Hampton, the Associate Director in the Office of Student Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Antonia Adams, College Access Consultant, at email@example.com.
