Patrick Patterson2The College of Social Work is pleased to announce a gift from Patrick to endow The Patterson/Woods Endowed Fellowship Fund. This fund will support students from underrepresented populations that are interested in social, community and economic development. Patrick stated during the announcement of his fellowship on April 24, 2015 that “the Patterson/Woods Fellowship is intentional so that long after we’re gone, we’ll still be here.” This gift will impact generations of College of Social Work students on their journey to make an impact like Patrick has. This fund also honors Patrick’s family and their impact on him and his life - “this isn’t about me, this is about what they have each done for me over the years.”

Patrick Patterson3The College of Social Work is grateful for Patrick and his willingness to keep Carolina’s promise to our student as we aim to increase support available to students through scholarships and fellowships. If you are interested in honoring someone’s legacy or starting your own legacy, you have the opportunity to become a part of the historic Carolina’s Promise campaign, which will raise at least $1 billion dollars to support students, research and programs at the University of South Carolina. We hope you will consider supporting the next generation of the College of Social Work students.
