Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina selects two college students for President’s Fellow Program

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina recently selected two Benedict College (Columbia, South Carolina) students for its 2016 President’s Fellow Program. 

Created in 2015, the President’s Fellow Program gives African-American male students from Benedict College the opportunity to use real-life experience to enhance their college career and their future professional opportunities. Fellows are exposed to all aspects of philanthropy, including grantmaking, financial management, community building, public policy and issue-driven initiatives. 

“The President’s Fellows Program gives the foundation an opportunity to work with two outstanding young men from Benedict College. Both of them have a passion for helping others and, I believe, will benefit personally and professionally from their experiences here at the Sisters of Charity Foundation,” said Tom Keith, president of the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina.
