Palmetto Fellows Scholarship early application period is open now

Tue, 01/10/2023

The Palmetto Fellows Scholarship early application period is currently open - applications must be received at the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education office by 5 p.m. on April 14. 

The CHE will not accept applications outside of this window, however a late award application window opens in May with slightly different requirements.

To apply for Palmetto Fellows, students must contact their school counselors. Applications submitted by anyone other than a counselor will not be accepted.

Students should receive a notification via email once their application is processed. If a notification is not received, students should check their spam or junk email folders to ensure they don’t miss the next steps in the process.

For questions or information on applying, students should begin with their high school counselors. For additional information, contact Kathryn Harris, CHE Scholarships and Grants program manager, at, or Tanya Weigold, CHE Scholarship and Grants program coordinator, at
