2023 HCC Scholarship Application

The Scholarship Fund is open to all Town of Clover graduating seniors without regard to school attended, graduating seniors attending South Shore High School (SSHS), and homeschooled students residing within the South Shore School District, who pursue any undergraduate course of study at an accredited two or four year college, university, or technical college. The Herbster Community Club (HCC) will not award scholarships to students to attend an exclusively online school. Awards shall be paid directly to the student’s school and shall be applied to tuition, books or other related educational expense.

Students may apply/reapply for scholarship funds on an annual basis. HCC will make no more than four (4) awards to any given student and no more than one (1) award per academic year. Candidates from the Town of Clover shall be given priority consideration, providing they meet all qualifications. If there are no qualifying applicants from the Town of Clover, the award(s) may be given to any other applicant(s) from the South Shore School District.

Final determination of all scholarship awards shall be subject to review and approval by the HCC Scholarship Committee and approved by the HCC Executive Committee.
