Softdocs Technology Scholars Program

The Softdocs Technology Scholars Program recognizes ambitious students from South Carolina, who are seeking degrees in technology related fields. Founded in 2018, as we celebrated 20 years of Softdocs, the Softdocs Technology Scholars Program awards renewable, annual scholarships each year.

For over 20 years, Softdocs has called South Carolina home. We love South Carolina, and we are grateful for the support and loyalty of our customers in the education marketplace who’ve helped us experience continued success. Beginning in 1998, Softdocs develops and provides content management solutions to colleges, universities and K-12 districts both in-state and across the country. In fact, Etrieve by Softdocs is the only education-focused enterprise content management solution on the market.

We’ve been able to grow as a company and expand our team, but our focus has remained on education and helping educational institutions. We are excited to be helping students now too, with the Softdocs Technology Scholars Program! We are awarding scholarships to South Carolina students seeking degrees in technology related fields.
