      The qualifications for the DYB Scholarship are simple; actually, there is only one qualification - you must have at one time played in a Dixie Youth Baseball franchised league, prior to reaching age 13. There is no relationship between the award of a scholarship and athletic ability. The committee gives weight to such factors as financial need, scholastic record, and citizenship.

We first launched our scholarship program in 2006 and have since given $300,000 towards the education of our state's students. This year we are excited to give away $14,000 in scholarship prizes to seven deserving students. One of the seven scholarships will be specifically earmarked for a student attending an HBCU.
      To apply, students must fill out our application and write a creative entry based on one of the following prompts:
      • As a graduating senior, what advice would you give to your younger self (and other incoming freshmen) about navigating peer pressure and avoiding risk-taking behavior like drunk driving and texting while driving?
      • Drunk driving accidents claim over 10,000 lives each year. Show or explain how drunk driving impacts your state, community and/or you, personally.
      • If applying for the HBCU scholarship, you may choose one of the above topics, or instead, you may submit a 600-word essay on “Why attending a historically Black college or university is important to me.”

      Students are also asked to nominate a teacher who left an impact on them, each winning student's teacher nominee will receive a cash prize. Winning students, their teacher nominee, and their guests will be invited to attend a Banquet held at the Francis Marion Hotel in Downtown Charleston in June.

Clemson University

Your housing priority depends on the date you send in your admissions application! A student MUST take the Writing portion of the ACT at least once for them to use ACT scores for admission purposes. Admission decisions DO DEPEND on stated MAJOR choice! Always list two diverse majors on your application. Do not wait for better SAT/ACT scores; send now. Admissions will update your application with better scores when sent. Clemson will take the highest SAT Reading and Math, even from different testing dates. If applying for either Honors College, there is an additional application. If applying to the Bridge program, there is not a separate application. If a Bridge student earns at least thirty hours and has at least a 2.5 GPA at the end of the college freshman year, the student does not have to reapply to Clemson for the sophomore year. If you plan to apply to the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences or the College of Engineering and Science, request one of the special tours that are given on Fridays for these areas. Clemson automatically reviews all appointments for possible scholarships given by the university. There are only a few obscure scholarships listed online that a student would need to separately apply.


College of Charleston

The College of Charleston requires two years of foreign language to graduate. The new student website is (formerly the cougar trail) to check for updates. Honors College requires an additional application, essay, and letters of recommendation. There are Open Houses scheduled in October and April ; tours are also given on weekdays and select Saturdays. A new major is Discovery Informatics and they have new programs in dance, archeology, photo, astrophysics, international studies, and women's and gender studies.


University of South Carolina


To apply for the Honors College, a student would need a letter of recommendation from the High School Counselor and two additional letters from others. USC makes major-blind admission decisions. If a student feels that he/she would be on the admissions bubble, an essay with additional information or of explanation will be helpful. Spring-only acceptance offers will come out in the spring. students applying here are automatically reviewed for USC scholarships, but some require separate applications! check their website to see which are which.



Seniors should apply online (or paper appointments if you choose) to the colleges of their choice Now! Be sure to bring in each college's guidance or Secondary School Forms with your name on it to the OPS Guidance Office.


SENIORS, PLEASE NOTIFY THE GUIDANCE OFFICE ASAP WHEN YOU ARE ACCEPTED TO A COLLEGE! This information is needed to compile data for the Class of 2024.
