$10,000 Scholarships to Clemson University – Deadline December 11

PastedGraphic-2

The Lyceum Scholars Program at Clemson University, is a new and unique $10,000 scholarship for incoming freshmen to study the moral, political, and economic foundations of a free society.  They have found that homeschool students are excellent candidates for the Lyceum Scholars Program and many of their current Scholars come from a homeschool background.

Lyceum Scholars take eight classes together as an intellectual cohort during their undergraduate career. They read the Great Books of Western Civilization and discuss timeless questions such as:

  • What makes a society free? 
  • What makes a society prosperous? 
  • What are the principles of the American Founding?


The Lyceum Scholars Program recreates the substance and value of a traditional liberal arts education, which is sadly missing from many of today’s colleges.

More information about the Program is available on their website and students may apply here.

2017 EPIC Materials Scholarship Winner

Meet Cassandra, the first winner of our annual EPIC Materials Scholarship.  Cassandra won our annual $100 scholarship offered to members of EPIC Homeschool Network. To learn more about membership go to www.epichsn.org.

Cassandra decided to apply for the EPIC Materials Scholarship because she thought it would be quite helpful in providing resources for homeschooling her children.

She is using the EPIC Materials Scholarship to create a school room for her children to use. She expressed how she would use the scholarship to purchase some book shelves for her children. This would allow her to store their supplies and organize their books. This would also open up the opportunity for her to get more books since she would have the space for them. She used the remaining balance to purchase some educational posters for the walls.

Her goal was to provide a more exciting and organized environment for her children to be able to learn.

Upon receiving her scholarship Cassandra expressed her deepest thanks:

Thank you so much for the scholarship. It has allowed us to start getting some excellent resources for the coming year.
