First Jordan Rively Scholarship Awarded

Posted by: wichmannkm | August 31, 2017 | No Comment |

Junior political science major Gabrielle Williams is the first recipient of the Jordan Rively Scholarship. The scholarship was recently created by political science alumni, Joseph Rively ’89.  He established the scholarship in memory of his grandparents, who funded his College of Charleston education. Mr. Rively is the Director of International Development at University of Pennsylvania and resides in Philadelphia.

Williams expressed considerable appreciation after being notified of the award. “Getting this scholarship allows me to focus on my schoolwork and extracurricular activities instead of having to focus on affording my tuition,” noted the aspiring criminal law attorney. “It will help me relax and spend time enjoying this whole experience,” Williams added.

The annual scholarship is intended for students pursuing their B.A. at the College of Charleston in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and provides $2,500 support. Preference is given to Political Science majors.
