Rozlyn Partain receives UPS Scholarship

Rozlyn Partain, an Erskine College freshman from Antreville, S.C., was selected to receive a CIC/UPS Scholarship provided by South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU) and its national partner, the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) in Washington, D.C.

“With my high school being in Due West, we had many events at Erskine,” Rozlyn says. “I fell in love with the campus, and it has always felt like home.”

Rozlyn graduated from Dixie High School and is pursuing a pre-veterinary course of study at Erskine. She works at a veterinary clinic after classes.

The Council of Independent Colleges, through the CIC/UPS Educational Endowment, has provided more than $1.4 million in student scholarships to support student success at private colleges and universities throughout the nation. This year, SCICU awarded $67,200 in CIC/UPS Scholarships to students at its 21 member institutions across South Carolina.

“The Council of Independent Colleges and the UPS Foundation have been longtime and generous champions of independent college higher education, not only in South Carolina, but nationwide,” says Jeff Perez, president and CEO of South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU). “We deeply appreciate the support of CIC and UPS and recognize that they have changed for the better the lives of many students at SCICU member institutions.”

Scholarships provided by SCICU and CIC offer significant support to students, bringing down the cost of their college education.
