The Gregg-Graniteville Foundation established three newly endowed scholarships that will support students from the University of South Carolina Aiken who live in Aiken and surrounding communities.


The Tim Wertz Scholarship will assist upper-level students in accounting at USCA, with a 2.75 minimum GPA, and a resident of Aiken County. The R. Keith and Angela Wood Scholarship will support School of Business students from Graniteville, Vaucluse, or Warren, South Carolina with a minimum 3.0 GPA and financial need. The Sally Jennings Scholarships will go to School of Education students who live in Aiken County and have graduated from one of the Aiken County high schools. 


“Gregg-Graniteville has been one of the university’s first partnerships since its beginnings, and I can’t think of a better way to support our students than through this generous intent for future generations of students,” said the Vice Chancellor for Development and Alumni Affairs, Mary Driscoll. 


Mr. Ira Coward, chairman of the Gregg-Graniteville Foundation stated, “The mission of Gregg-Graniteville Foundation is to enhance the education, health, and general welfare of the community by providing scholarships. We also create grants to service organizations and institutions within Aiken County.”

The Gregg-Graniteville Foundation's heartfelt contributions to USCA have exceeded $2 million.
