Scholarship & Loan Details

The Springs Close Foundation

Colonel Springs understood that a good education is critical for improving quality of life. In fact, he believed this so strongly that he began giving interest-free student loans out of his own pocket in 1942 when the Springs Foundation was created.

Since that time, the student loan program has become a mainstay of the Foundation's operations, lending more than $9 million to just over 8,400 students.

The student loan program helps students achieve a post-secondary education in two different ways: through attendance at a four-year, accredited, degree-granting senior college or university in South Carolina or through attendance at York Technical College in Rock Hill. Students must live in, or their parents must be employed in, Lancaster County, Fort Mill Township or Chester Township.

The Fulbright Scholar Program

The Fulbright Program, the U.S. government's flagship program in international educational exchange, was proposed to the U.S. Congress in 1945 by then freshman Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. In the aftermath of World War II, Senator Fulbright viewed the proposed program as a much-needed vehicle for promoting “mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries of the world.” His vision was approved by Congress and the program signed into law by President Truman in 1946.

Fulbright grants are made to U.S. citizens and nationals of other countries for a variety of educational activities, primarily university lecturing, advanced research, graduate study and teaching in elementary and secondary schools. Since the program’s inception, more than 250,000 participants (chosen for their leadership potential) have had the opportunity to observe each others political, economic and cultural institutions.
