In 1998, The Lowcountry Phi Beta Kappa Association began annually recognizing outstanding scholarship in the liberal arts and sciences with monetary awards. Early in the program we honored graduating college seniors, and then for quite a few years we selected graduating high school seniors.
Currently, we award $2,500 scholarships to rising seniors from four Charleston-area colleges: The College of Charleston, The Citadel, Charleston Southern University and the American College of Building Arts. The students, nominated by the offices of their respective deans, must demonstrate outstanding academic achievement in a liberal arts or sciences major. The PBK scholars are introduced to the membership at our annual banquet in the spring. Winners for 2023
Ms. Deymon Fleming, Charleston Southern University
Mr. Evans Banks, The Citadel
Ms. Madeline Landa, College of Charleston
Ms. Carolyne Chardac, American College of the Building Arts
