How to Apply
Acceptance to the GoSciTech program is based on academic achievement of students entering the 8th, 9th, and 10th grades. Students who have demonstrated scholarship in science and math and desire an academically challenging experience in science, math, computer science, technology or engineering are strong candidates.
The parent or guardian of a student must complete the online application and submit the student's first semester report card for the application to be complete. The online application will be available in mid-February.
Applications are not considered complete until the first semester (Q1 & Q2) report card is received for the current 2022-2023 school year.
If applying for financial aid, the first page of the family's 2021 or 2022 1040 tax return (black out any Social Security Numbers), along with all other application materials, will need to be submitted to the online application. Please make sure the 1040 that is submitted is claiming the child(ren) who are requesting aid. Financial need is not taken into consideration for acceptance to the GoSciTech program. The financial aid application is not complete until the tax information has been submitted.
A limited amount of need-based financial aid is available to residents of South Carolina. To apply, complete the financial aid section of the application before April 15. Need-based assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
For special circumstances, paper applications are available by contacting the Center for Science Education and Outreach at 843.383.3958.
