Learn how Pinckney Scholars program goes beyond the dollar

The Reverend Pinckney Scholars program was created in memory of S.C. Sen.  Clementa Pinckney following the 2015 Emanuel AME Church massacre in Charleston. The program promotes access to higher education for low-income African-American students in Beaufort, Charleston, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties. The scholars accepted into the program receive financial support through scholarships, plus professional development, financial literacy education and coaching from staff. Now, it also includes free mental health care.
