PHSC Foundation Scholarships: Various Due Dates

The PHSC Foundation offers more than 220 endowed scholarships and over 50 annual scholarships which are made possible through generous contributions from local private businesses, foundations, civic organizations, and individuals.

Scholarships are awarded by the Financial Aid Office with the assistance of the online scholarship program software that matches the applications with the scholarship criteria designed by the donors. These matches are then provided to the scholarship selection committee, a cross-section of PHSC staff and faculty who make the final decision.

Students may apply online for a Foundation Scholarship. Many scholarships are based on demonstrated financial need as established by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), so all students are encouraged to complete the online FAFSA. Complete your FAFSA through the new mobile app which can be downloaded in both the Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android).
