Types of Scholarships

Scholarship Endowment

The Heritage Society, begun in 1982, is PCC’s endowed scholarship program.  It consists of 57 endowed scholarships which form the core of the Foundation’s Scholarship program.  The Heritage Society continues to grow because of the special donors who wish to provide educational opportunities for people in their community. Here is a list of endowed scholarships.

Endowments provide funds for a scholarship in perpetuity and require a minimum donation of $10,000 to create.  This amount may be reached over a three (3) year period. Once the scholarship reaches permanent status, one year is needed to accumulate income sufficient to fund the scholarship award. Investment of the principal of each endowment shall be handled in accordance with the Foundation investment policies.

Annual Scholarships

The Foundation currently has several one year scholarships available.  This type of scholarship can be named for a business, organization or individual.  These scholarships can be renewed each year with an additional donation.  The minimum donation for a one year scholarship is $250.  Here is a list of annual scholarships.
