Swanson Scholars

Merit-based Scholarships

Steve ’89 and Emily Molony Swanson ’89 know that what you get out of an education depends on what you put in.

That’s why they have given $2.25 million to create the Swanson Scholars Program, which brings the best and brightest students into the College of Charleston’s Honors College.

“When the best and brightest go into a program like the Honors College, all boats float higher,” says Steve. “The students are more engaged, the professors who teach them are more challenged, the whole College improves. And when that happens, it is good for the entire Charleston community. When you have these kinds of students in your population, everyone wins.”
