Rick & Rory Ackerman Scholarships at the
University of South Carolina



We moved to South Carolina in May, 2008 as the cornerstone of our retirement plan to relocate to a university town. We wanted to be able to enjoy all the opportunities and activities that a major university has to offer. Rick began taking acting classes , we became avid supporters of the USC Women's Basketball Team, and began making friends (students, faculty, and administrators). Our experiences were so satisfying that we began looking for a way to "give back". In 2010, we established "Rick & Rory Ackerman Scholarships" at the University of South Carolina beginning in the fall semester of the 2010-2011 academic year. We selected three schools: the Darla Moore School of Business (undergraduate or graduate students in international business); the School of Music (underegraduate music majors and graduate students), and the Department of Theater and Dance in the College of Arts & Sciences (graduate students pursuing a master of fine arts degree). With the help of the USC Division of Development, we established the criteria by which scholarships would be conveyed, but left it to the schools to select their individual recipients.

We are happy to recognize the recipients of our scholarships. We are proud to know them (and, in many cases, their families) and look forward to enjoying their future successes.
