The Melba McKenzie and LeAnn Crosby Summer Scholarships were established by the South Carolina Consortium for Gifted Education as a tribute to the spirit and perseverance of former educators who devoted their career to working with gifted and talented academic and artistic students in our state.
The scholarship is provided for one or more low SES gifted students at the middle school level (current grades 6-8). The amount of the scholarship, not to exceed $750.00, is designed to cover or partially cover tuition to attend a summer program for academically or artistically gifted students.
To apply for the South Carolina Consortium for Gifted Education: The Melba McKenzie and LeAnn Crosby Summer Camp Scholarships, the student must complete an application, an interest survey, and submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or principal explaining why the student deserves the scholarship. Please see your guidance counselor or gifted teacher at your school for an application for this scholarship
