3 Requirements to Maintain Your Meeting Street Scholarship Throughout College

October 19, 2022

While we understand that working hard in high school is important, it is equally important that students continue to focus on school work and maintain good grades throughout college. With an increased workload, the transition between high school and college can be jarring, making it difficult to keep up with college requirements. We encourage students to remain dedicated to their school work, so they continue their eligibility to receive the Meeting Street Scholarship for all four years of college, graduate with less debt, and be better prepared for life after college.

To continue receiving the Meeting Street Scholarship, students must:

  1. Retain their SC LIFE or Palmetto Fellows Scholarship by:
  • Earning at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale by the end of the academic year
  • Earning an average of 30 credit hours per academic year
  • Remaining a South Carolina resident
  1. Complete the  FAFSA renewal application annually and continue to receive a Pell Grant. 
  1. Remain enrolled full-time at an eligible South Carolina college with a six-year graduation rate of 50% or higher. 

We know it can be difficult to navigate the changes college presents, so check out our blog, 19 Tips for a Great College Experience, for advice from college students on how they maintained good grades, adjusted their study habits, and more. If a student loses their eligibility for the Meeting Street Scholarship and later becomes eligible, they can reapply when they are eligible.
