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 compilation of 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.
