Seven Cheraw High students recently received Palmetto Fellow Scholarships.
Recipients are Laura Brabham, Chelsea Maier, Briana Schoen, Rachel Marsh, Matthew Lide, Leah Atkinson and Joshuah Campbell.
The Palmetto Fellows Scholarship is a merit-based program established in 1988 to recognize the most academically talented high school seniors and encourage these students to attend college in the State. It was established in 2007 to increase the number of students who major in mathematics and science in South Carolina.
The Palmetto Fellows Scholarship Program is administered by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. Palmetto Fellows may receive up to $6,700 their freshman year and up to $7,500 for their sophomore, junior and senior years. Half of the Scholarship is awarded in the fall term and half in the spring term.
