All Opportunities

FALL 2021 applications ARE CLOSED. Any submissions AFTER September 16 will not be considered for Fall 2021 awarding.
In the event of needing emergency tuition or textbook assistance, please email pscfoundation@prairiestate.edu for consideration.
SPRING 2022 applications will OPEN NOVEMBER 15. Any submissions BEFORE November 15 will not be considered for Spring 2022 awarding.


  • Applicants WILL NEED TO BE REGISTERED for the SPRING 22 term BEFORE SUBMITTING THEIR APPLICATION in order for their application to be reviewed.

  • BE SURE TO REVIEW pre-qualifying criteria for scholarships at prairiestate.edu/Foundation before beginning an application.

  • Any MISSING information or INCOMPLETE answers on the application WILL DELAY the review.

  • Applications are REVIEWED IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY ARE RECEIVED and response time is based on the number of applications pending review. Funding is limited and the application window can close early/at any time once semester funds have been exhausted.

  • Applicants should contact the PSC Business Office at businessoffice@prairiestate.edu to SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN, as a Foundation award will not be applied until a tuition payment is made.

  • Be sure to CHECK YOUR PSC EMAIL REGULARLY for updates and communication from the Foundation.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE BEGINNING A SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION:

  • Complete the scholarship application. YOU ARE COMPLETING ONE APPLICATION IN TOTAL. The system will auto match you to any scholarships for which you may qualify. Once your application is submitted, the system may alert you to additional recommended scholarships, that require additional question(s) to be answered. Simply follow the system prompts as directed.

  • It is recommended to HAVE YOUR ESSAYS PROOFREAD by someone else, such as your PSC Academic Advisor or the PSC Writing Center. Be sure to tell your story.

  • ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS to the best of your ability. Required fields are marked with an asterisk. The more information provided, the better understanding the Review Committee has of your story and your financial need.

  • ESSAYS MUST be in MS Word or PDF format. DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR LAST NAME in your essays.

  • Notify ssebastian@prairiestate.edu IF YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR APPLICATION in any way (i.e. schedule change).

  • You do not have to finish the application in one sitting. TO SAVE YOUR APPLICATION before it is complete, click “Save and Keep Editing”.

  • One completed, be sure to SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION by clicking “Finish and Continue”.

  • The PSC Foundation STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that you schedule a meeting with an Academic Advisor at https://prairiestate.edu/student-services/academic-advising-center/index.aspx to create a customized Academic Plan for your success.

  • Should you have any QUESTIONS regarding the application process, contact Susan Sebastian, PSC Foundation Scholarship Coordinator, at ssebastian@prairiestate.edu.
