Scholarships at PPCC
Generous donations to the PPCC Foundation fund more than 60 scholarship opportunities each year to help make college more affordable. This year the Foundation will award more than $1,200,000 in scholarships to PPCC students. Scholarships help pay for tuition and fees and some also cover books and other costs of attending. There are scholarships available that will help you all the way to graduation with your associate’s degree, and even possibly your bachelor’s degree.
The 2021 PPCC Foundation General Application for Scholarships is now closed. Please check this website again in September 2021 when the application will reopen for the Spring 2022 semester.
