Teal 1000 Scholarship

The Teal 1000 Scholarship is an opportunity for local Horry and Georgetown County business owners and residents to show their support by giving an annual donation of $1,000 to Coastal Carolina University. This scholarship is awarded to local full-time students attending Coastal through an application process. This year the TEAL 1000 Scholarship has directly impacted the education for two students, who both are a part of the prestigious Teaching Fellows Program. Sophie Sumpter and Alex Del Castillo, both future educators in the state of South Carolina, are TEAL 1000 recipients. Not only have they received the TEAL 1000, but also the Teaching Fellowship Scholarship at Coastal Carolina which awards them with $6,000 per year, a total of $24,000, in turn to teach in South Carolina for four years. Sophie and Alex would like to thank the Spadoni College of Education at CCU for the tremendous amount of opportunities and support given to them. They would also like to thank the many local individuals and businesses who have donated to the TEAL 1000 fund for helping them attend Coastal so that they can give back to the community who has given them so much.
