Scholarships

The cost of college climbs every year, leaving higher education out of reach for many low-income students, and forcing others to work long hours to pay for school and living expenses.



PCF awards every scholar a scholarship of $3,000 per year (renewable for all four years of college), which helps fill their financial aid gap and allows them to focus on their studies. In order to receive their scholarship each year, scholars must remain enrolled in college full-time, maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher, attend all PCF college and career training events, provide us with transcripts and updates each term, and communicate with their mentor and PCF staff on a regular basis.

To fund a scholarship for one of our promising young scholars, please see our donation page.
