The Piedmont Community College (PCC) Foundation opened its first round of scholarship awards on Monday, March 1, for the 2021-22 academic year. The Foundation will be accepting applications through April 12 and funds will be available for summer and fall courses. Students should visit www.piedmontcc.edu/scholarships for the application and guidelines.
Offering over 100 scholarships each year, the PCC Foundation is grateful to the many donors in and around the College’s service area. This includes support from local businesses and individuals, College employees, and civic organizations.
During this round, a PCC Board of Trustees Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior with the highest grade point average who will also be attending PCC. To qualify for this $1,500 award, the student must apply during this March-April scholarship application period.
In addition, applicants may qualify for Pacer Promise funds. This program offers free tuition and $200 for textbooks to students with 12 or more credits and a 2.5 GPA or higher in a technical program at PCC.
Each year the scholarship applications are reviewed by an external committee comprised of members of the PCC Foundation Board of Directors. These volunteers carefully match qualified applicants to scholarship opportunities. Interested students need only submit one application to be considered for all available scholarships.
The PCC Foundation serves students, faculty, and staff at the College in the form of student scholarships, mini-grants for innovative initiatives, employee recognition and development opportunities, and other special projects as needed.
