Rudolph Canzater Scholarship

Proceeds from the Classic benefit the James E. Clyburn Research and Scholarship Foundation, helping to fund need-based college scholarships and the James E. Clyburn Endowment at South Carolina State University.   In addition, the Foundation has donated $440,000 to endowments at several South Carolina colleges and universities.  To date, the Foundation has provided over 1,200 Clyburn scholars with more than $1.1 million in college scholarships.  These cash awards have been matched by another $1.1 million from various colleges and universities.  The list of past scholarship recipients, the schools they elected to attend, and other information about this very worthwhile event can be found at

For the past several years, through Dell’s very generous contribution, the Foundation was able to provide every scholarship recipient with a laptop. This donation came at the perfect time – many of the students had just received a notice from their college requiring they bring a laptop with them to school.
