Past Scholarship Recipients

In 2004, CWIT began offering scholarships to aid South Carolina resident students who are enrolled/enrolling in an accredited higher education program in pursuit of a degree specific to international trade or related course of study. To date, 37 students have received CWIT scholarships, amounting to a grand total of $87K since our scholarship program began in 2004, over 15 years ago! Awards are presented at the Annual Meeting and Banquet held in April of each year. Funds for CWIT scholarships are primarily earned during the Annual Event held in the fall.
