Why Give

Types of Scholarship Support

Citadel Scholars
The Citadel Scholars Fund at The Citadel Foundation allows The Citadel to recruit top academic students - nationally and internationally - who want to excel scholastically and prepare for a lifetime of leadership. Based on SAT and high school records, prospective freshman cadets will be invited to campus for a scholarship competition, including an interview with the Faculty Scholarship Committee. Top academic students will be named "Citadel Scholars" and receive scholarship funds to cover all tuition and student fees. Citadel Scholarships are renewable for four years, as long as the cadet continues to meet the eligibility requirements. Gifts to the fund may be made at any time and in any amount. Each named Citadel Scholar requires a gift of $500,000 to the Citadel Scholars Fund.

Each full-award named Citadel Brigadier Foundation Scholar requires a gift of $250,000 to the Citadel Brigadier Foundation Memorial Fund.

Citadel Leadership Scholars
True to its mission, The Citadel recruits young people for the Corps of Cadets who have demonstrated the qualities of leadership, academic achievement, self-discipline, and service - qualities that will enable them to excel in The Citadel's unique military environment. Each year, many excellent candidates, due to a lack of financial aid, do not attend The Citadel. The Citadel Leadership Scholars Fund offers partial scholarships to outstanding prospective students. Gifts to the fund may be made at any time and in any amount. Each named Citadel Leadership Scholarship requires a minimum contribution of $100,000 to the Citadel Leadership Scholars Fund.

Armed Forces Scholars
Since its founding, The Citadel has educated and trained leaders for the armed services. The Armed Forces Scholars program seeks to fund a portion of the difference between the amount a cadet pays to attend The Citadel and an ROTC Scholarship. Eligible candidates will have been accepted to The Citadel and will have been awarded an ROTC Scholarship by one of the branches of the U.S. military. Gifts to the fund may be made at any time and in any amount. Each named Armed Forces Scholarship requires a gift of $75,000 to the Armed Forces Scholarship Fund.

Graduate Assistantship
Recognizing the growing importance of graduate students at the college, the Graduate Assistantship Fund has been established to enable awards providing partial support students pursuing graduate and professional degrees. Graduate assistantships in The Citadel's Graduate College will allow faculty members to recruit students for each assistantship in a competitive process. Gifts to the fund may be made at any time and in any amount. Each named Graduate Assistantship requires a gift of $75,000 to the Graduate Assistantship Fund.

Individual Named Scholarships
Donors who wish to have specific requirements for the granting of the scholarship award have established individual Named Scholarships over the years.

President's Honorary Scholarship Fund
The President's Honorary Scholarship Fund was initiated in 1955 as a repository for all gifts to the general scholarship program of The Citadel that are not for specifically named scholarship funds. The President's Honorary Scholarship Fund was establish by General Mark Clark and is supported by contributions from General Clark, alumni, and friends of The Citadel. Scholarships are available to cadets who possess attributes in accord with the high standards of The Citadel. The first award from this fund was made in 1956.
