Agricultural Scholarships By an Act of the State Legislature in the session of 1904, 124 beneficiary scholarships were established, of the value of $100 per annum each, and apportioned among the counties in the same manner as the members of the House of Representatives.

Examination questions are to be prepared by the President and Faculty of the College and sent to the County Board of Education of each county on or before the 15th day of July in each year, with a statement of the number of vacant scholarships to which the county is entitled. The County Board holds the examinations, grades the papers, and forwards them with recommendations to the State Board of Education.

Section 4 reads, “That before applying for said scholarships applicants shall make proof under oath to their respective County Boards of Education, as required by law for scholarships in the South Carolina Military Academy, of their financial inability to attend college, before they shall receive from said Board permission to stand such examination.”

The law further provides that these scholarships “shall each continue for the term of four years, or for such length of time as the beneficiary shall be able to maintain himself and comply with the rules of the College; and said sum of one hundred dollars per annum shall be placed to the credit of each of said beneficiaries, and applied towards the payment of his board and other necessary school expenses.”
