James and Charlotte Gignilliat Scholarship
Each year the South Carolina Historical Society awards up to three Gignilliat scholarships to students of Huguenot descent. Students are judged on their ability to compile a family tree, academic ability, and leadership qualifications. The Gignilliat Scholarship Fund was established in 1973 by Thomas M. Gignilliat, who stipulated that the recipients must descend from a Huguenot ancestor who settled in North America prior to November 28, 1787. The deadline for this year’s applications is May 25, 2022.
