Piedmont Community College (PCC) is accepting scholarship applications for the Summer and Fall 2022 semesters. The application process begins March 1 and will continue through April 25. More than 100 scholarships are available for students looking for workforce/short-term training and curriculum-based learning.

To be considered for a scholarship, a candidate must submit an online application, found at  www.piedmontcc.edu/scholarships. Curriculum students will need to provide the email addresses of two references who will be contacted for letters of recommendation, register for at least 6 credit hours per semester, and have a grade point average of 2.0 or higher.

In addition to annual and endowed scholarships, funding is available through:

  • Duke Energy and GEER (Governor’s Emergency Educational Relief) for students pursuing short-term training in healthcare, advanced manufacturing, and information technology
  • Project Skill-Up for first generational college students registered for short-term training;
  • Golden Leaf for students registered for short-term training;
  • Pacer Promise Scholarship, offering free tuition for students taking 12 credit hours in a Career and Technical Educational Program that maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher;
  • Longleaf Commitment Grant, offering free tuition to high school graduates in the class of 2022. Students must be taking 6 credit hours per semester in a curriculum program and have an expected family contribution of $15,000 or less.

“Our community is blessed with wonderful donors and programs designed to make earning an education more attainable,” Beth Townsend, PCC Vice President of Advancement and Communications said. “The available scholarships vary in criteria. Some are based on financial needs while others focus on merit. Everyone has an opportunity to be selected; all it takes is a completed application to get started.”

Some scholarships, such as the Pacer Promise and the Longleaf Commitment Grant, may require students to first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Assistance to complete the application is available in person and virtually with PCC’s Financial Aid Team. Call (336) 599-1181 to schedule an appointment.
