The Carolina Rugby Foundation

January 19, 2016

 
The University of South Carolina Men's Rugby program today announced the spring 2016 recipients of the Carolina Rugby Scholarship, awarding six student-athletes who have demonstrated excellence both on the field and in the classroom.  

Funded by the Jeffrey S. Smolka Rugby Endowed Scholarship Fund and established in 2015, the Carolina Rugby Scholarship offers the greatest financial impact of any rugby scholarship in the country. Renewable semesterly, recipients have the potential of receiving nearly $60,000 over their four year stay.

Recipients must meet a number of standards, both academic and rugby related, to be considered for the award. “The combination of academic achievement, rugby prowess, and community leadership exhibited by these men underscores the core values of this scholarship,” says Mark Morris, Head Coach of the South Carolina Men's Rugby program. "Our mission is to reward those who contribute greatly to the program’s success while attracting top talent from established programs across the nation. The Smolka Family, through their contributions and the creation of the Carolina Rugby Scholarship, has placed us in a position where we’re becoming a popular choice for accomplished rugby players. We are thankful for their commitment to the program and we look forward to achieving new heights with their support."
