Scholarship Shows Alumnus’ Faith in the CofC Experience

The Gerald and Beth Polis Scholarship

During his four years as a student, Jerry Polis ’62 was a recipient of the S.S. Solomons Scholarship, which affords financial assistance to students of Jewish faith. Because of his deep affinity for his College of Charleston experience and his gratitude to the donor who supported him, Polis and his wife Beth created and endowed the Gerald and Beth Polis Scholarship. Their investment will help attract talented students of Jewish faith to the College and thrive as students, just as Polis did. “I am deeply grateful to the College for the quality education I received, as well as the meaningful social life I enjoyed during my four years as a student, both of which significantly prepared me for the challenges of life,” says Polis. “To now be able to provide financial assistance to others so that they, too, may enjoy a College of Charleston experience is extremely rewarding.”The first recipient of the Gerald and Beth Polis Scholarship will enter the College in fall 2016.
