All Opportunities

The deadline for Fall 2018 applications is September 23. STUDENTS MUST BE REGISTERED FOR FALL 2018 IN ORDER TO APPLY. Please contact the Foundation Office if you have an emergency situation so that we may further discuss.

Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received. You will be notified via your PSC student email if an award can or cannot be made. Thank you for your patience and understanding with the review process.

Before beginning the general application, please note:

  • The attention you give to your application will be obvious to the Scholarship Review Committee. Take time and use your best writing skills.

  • Answer all questions to the best of your ability. Required fields are marked with an asterisk. The more information provided, the better understanding the Scholarship Review Committee has and can fairly award students.

  • Be sure to attach the two essays in the correct format (i.e. MS Word or PDF). DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR LAST NAME in the essays.

  • You may provide updates as needed to your application at any time during the acceptance period.

  • If you are unable to complete the application in one sitting, you can save your application by clicking Save and Keep Editing at the bottom of the page.

  • Once completed, you can submit your application by clicking Finish and Continue.
