“I would like Pickens County students to realize what a gem they have next door in Reinhardt. They don’t have to go far away from home to get a great education.”

The first Scholars campaign, created in 1988 for Cherokee County students, has provided more than $4.9 million in scholarships for residents of our neighboring county.

A History of Scholars for Reinhardt

The Scholars for Reinhardt fundraising campaign was created in 1988 to increase the awareness of Reinhardt University in the local community and to provide additional financial assistance to Cherokee County students attending then Reinhardt College. Since its inception, local business leaders, donors and volunteers have enthusiastically supported the idea. Since the first Scholars for Reinhardt, local enrollment has grown from "a handful of students" to almost one-third of the student body, or approximately 350 students. We are excited to bring this opportunity to our neighbors in Pickens County.
