Applications for Paul D. Camp Community College scholarships will open Sept. 8, 2016, for the spring 2017 semester. New and continuing students can apply for a number of funding opportunities beginning that day.
“Scholarships offered at PDCCC can mean all the difference for a potential student who lacks resources, which can result in a common obstacle in regard to reaching educational goals,” said Dr. Renee Felts, executive director of the PDCCC Foundation and vice president for institutional advancement. “We are fortunate to have so many donors who place a priority on postsecondary education.”
During the fall 2016 semester, PDCCC awarded students 18 scholarships totaling more than $22,000.
There are 17 scholarships for new and continuing students available for the spring 2017 semester. Students may apply for these regardless if they have applied for scholarships in the fall, as long as they meet the criteria listed for each award.
