Looking for Rising Star scholarships

Where?

MBV Charleston launched the program in 2023 to support high school seniors located in the Tri-County area (Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley) and high school seniors who are dependent children of MBV Charleston Team Members who plan to attend college or vocational school. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

How much and how many?

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a one-time scholarship valued at $5,000. Up to 18 awards, for a total of $90,000 will be granted each year, with six scholarships being granted to dependent children of MBV Charleston Team Members, six scholarships being granted to students from high schools in the selected areas, and six being granted to students from high schools in the selected areas planning to attend Trident Technical College.

Who?

Scholarship America is a national nonprofit educational support and student aid service organization that seeks to involve and assist the private sector in expanding educational opportunities and encouraging educational achievement.
