Peninsula College Foundation extends deadline for scholarship applications

The Peninsula College Foundation has extended its application deadline for dozens of scholarships — totaling more than $100,000 — for students attending Peninsula College in 2021-2022.

The new deadline is May 9 for non-nursing program scholarships.

Typical awards are $1,000 or more for a variety of educational programs, with several full tuition scholarships available. Graduating high school seniors and returning PC students are encouraged to apply, as are returning or first-time adult students, foundation representatives said.

“The exceptional programs at Peninsula College are a great value, and we can help alleviate the financial stress students may feel as they pursue their education,” foundation Executive Director Getta Workman said.

Other Washington state colleges have extended their scholarship deadline because of fewer applicants than normal, Workman noted, and said the pandemic is having a profound impact on students and families in the community.

To apply for Peninsula College Foundation scholarships:

• visit

• create a login and a personal profile, or update existing profile

• enter “Peninsula College” in the search toolbar to review the list of all available scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year

• submit application(s)

There is no fee and no limit to the number of scholarships that an individual can apply for, as long as the criteria for the scholarship is met, college representatives said.

Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as many scholarships require letters of recommendation, personal essays, and unofficial transcripts. Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.

Award notifications for general scholarships will be provided to applicants beginning June 7.

Nursing scholarship applications are due July 18, and awardees will be notified beginning July 26.
