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 three Charleston-area colleges: The College of Charleston, The Citadel, and Charleston Southern University. The students, nominated by the offices of their respective deans, must demonstrate outstanding academic achievement in a liberal arts or sciences major. Ordinarily they are introduced to the membership at our annual banquet in the spring, although no banquet was possible in 2020. The winners were, in any case:
Mr. Benjamin Blauch, Charleston Southern University
Mr. Nicholas Fricchione, The Citadel
Ms. Madeline Methvin, College of Charleston
