Madison Cheatham of Pinewood Preparatory School and Melissa Foster of Fort Dorchester High School have been named finalists in the 2014 Erskine College Presidential Scholarship Competition.
Cheatham and Foster will be among 30 finalists competing on the Erskine College campus Feb. 7 – 8.
The Presidential Scholarship is Erskine’s most generous financial award, worth nearly $200,000 in tuition, room, board and fees over four years. Two of these awards will be granted, along with several other exceptional scholarships.
Applicants are given the opportunity to express themselves through an essay, a resume of academic and other activities, and an interview.
Semifinalists are chosen based on their scholastic as well as extracurricular activities, including but not limited to school, church, community, and civic involvement.
The 30 finalists, chosen from among 100 semifinalists, will compete for two Presidential Scholarships and several other generous awards to be announced later this spring for enrollment in Fall 2014.
Erskine, South Carolina’s oldest four-year Christian college, offers undergraduate liberal arts college and graduate theological education on its historic campus in Due West, South Carolina.
