Peninsula College Foundation announces 2018-19 scholarship process

The Peninsula College Foundation is offering nearly 70 scholarships totaling more than $100,000 to students attending Peninsula College for the 2018-2019 school year.

Scholarships are available in the areas of nursing and medical assisting; automotive technology, welding and other vocational programs; science; education, language arts; music; business administration; students with financial need; scholarships for area tribal students; and more.

Application deadlines vary, with the majority due Sunday, April 22.

Applicants are advised to check each scholarship’s deadline.

There are three simple steps to apply for Peninsula College scholarships:

• Visit www.theWashBoard.org

• Create a login and a personal profile

• Enter “Peninsula College” in the search toolbar to review the list of all available PC and PC Foundation scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year

While the majority of foundation scholarships will open for applications, students are urged check back often as additional scholarships may become available.

Students are also encouraged to start the process early as many scholarships require recommendation letters, personal essays, and unofficial transcripts to complete applications. Applications that are incomplete or submitted after the scholarship deadline will not be accepted.

Scholarship award notifications for general scholarships will be provided to students beginning May 21.

Students awarded nursing scholarships will be notified starting July 30.
