Apply for Scholarships!
Scholarships are considered gift aid, and don't require repayment. All students are encouraged to apply, regardless of immigration status.
PC students enjoy many scholarship opportunities through the generosity of individuals and organizations from around the community, including distinguished alumni, and corporations. Read on to explore resources for finding multiple categories of gift aid:
FOUNDATION & DISTRICT
Use ONE APPLICATION to apply for HUNDREDS OF SCHOLARSHIPS!
STEP 1: COMPLETE SCHOLARSHIP PROFILE
Developing a profile in the Scholarship Online Application System serves two essential purposes:
- It automatically filters a huge scholarship database, alerting you to opportunities that are a good fit.
- When you select a scholarship that's worthwhile, it submits your information to the award committee for consideration, saving time and resources.
Don't be Bashful: Complete your profile, and ensure the essay reflects your best writing. Concerned that your grades aren't optimal? Worried that there are no opportunities in your field of study? Finalize your profile anyway. We have scholarships for every major, and for students whose GPAs start at 2.0.
