~Graduating High School Senior Scholarships Close April 4~
 
Applications for Paul D. Camp Community College scholarships will open April 7 for the Fall 2014 semester. Dual enrollment high school students and new and continuing students can apply for an array of funding opportunities beginning that day.
 
“The cost of an education should not stop anyone from reaching their educational goals. That’s why Paul D. Camp Community College has established a number of opportunities for prospective and current students to get their education paid for through scholarships,” said Felicia Blow, Executive Director of the PDCCC Foundation and Vice President for Institutional Advancement. “What is amazing is that these opportunities are possible because of donors who have sacrificed, saved and contributed in order to help others achieve success.” In 2013, the PDCCC Financial Aid Office awarded nearly 70 scholarships totaling more than $55,000 to students.
