The GKF Scholarship

The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation is proud to award scholarships to students with physical disabilities at the College of Charleston, Charleston Southern University, Trident Technical College, The Citadel, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and Clemson University Restoration Institute.  The scholarship can be renewed for up to a total of four years.

A full application is required the first application year. Each of the following years, a current transcript is required by the application deadline. The scholarship is not automatically renewed each year, so a transcript must be provided for the board to review.

Recipient Information

The foundation participates in various functions throughout the year. We encourage and enjoy seeing our recipients take part in these functions as they are able.
