A generous donor recently established The South Carolina Bluebird Society Scholarship Fund at the University of South Carolina Aiken (USCA). The annual $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to full-time, degree-seeking students majoring in biology and in good student standing. Students will be required to comply with the mission statement of the South Carolina Bluebird Society (SCBS) as follows: "The SCBS is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the recovery and conservation of the Eastern Bluebird and other cavity-nesting birds native to South Carolina and elsewhere." Students will assist the SCBS in conducting research on bluebirds and other cavity-nesting birds. USC Aiken senior biology major Emelie Alarcon is the first scholarship recipient. "Thanks to this generous scholarship, I can focus more on the most important aspect of school, which is learning," Emelie said. "Because of the SCBS, I have been given the opportunity to extend my passion for wildlife. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to assist in the recovery of the bluebird population."
