Clemson AMGA Student Assistance Endowment

Clemson AMGA Student Assistance Endowment

HISTORY: Established in April 2007 with 25,000.00 “to provide student assistance of $1000.00 or more for junior or senior undergraduates or graduate students enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences and pursuing horticultural-related studies with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and be residents of Aiken County”.

Well, the “Great Recession” put a “hurt” on that initial $25K and it was not until 2016(!) that the endowment balance had recovered sufficiently such that award distributions were made. The first recipient of the AMGA endowment was Ashley Townsend of North Augusta.
