Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, the Peninsula College Foundation will open its application process, offering more than $110,000 in scholarships to students attending Peninsula College in the 2022-2023 academic year.
A number of scholarships are available for students in the healthcare field as well as welding, cyber security and information technology (IT), multimedia communications, criminal justice, the sciences, education, language arts, journalism, music, business administration and others.
Several of the scholarships being offered are considered “full-ride” at more than $6,000 each.
Criteria for awards varies, supporting financial need, academic achievement, area and tribal students, first generation college students and more.
Application deadlines vary, with the majority due Sunday, April 17; applicants are advised to check each scholarship’s deadline.
To apply for Peninsula College Foundation scholarships:
• visit theWashBoard.org;
• 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 PC and PC Foundation scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year; and,
• submit applications (there is no limit to the number of scholarships that an individual can apply for)
While the majority of Foundation scholarships will open on Jan. 18, foundation representatives advise applicants to check back often for additional scholarships that may become available.
Students are encouraged to start the process early as many scholarships require letters of recommendation, personal essays, and unofficial transcripts. Applications that are incomplete or submitted after the scholarship deadline will not be accepted.
Award notifications for general scholarships will be provided to applicants beginning May 16. Award notifications for nursing-specific scholarships begin July 25.
