The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina recently selected two Benedict College students for the President’s Fellow Program. The President’s Fellows program, created in 2015, gives African-American male students the opportunity to use real-life experience to enhance their college career and their future professional opportunities. Fellows are exposed to all aspects of philanthropy throughout the program including grantmaking, financial management, community building, public policy and issue driven initiatives.
“The President’s Fellows Program gives the Foundation an opportunity to work with with two outstanding young men from Benedict College. Both of them have a passion for helping others and, I believe, will benefit personally and professionally from their experiences here at the Sisters of Charity Foundation,” Tom Keith, Foundation President, said.
