Scholarships are monetary awards given to students by their college or other organizations, companies, and providers, that do not have to be paid back. Scholarships can be based on academic performance, extracurricular performance, athletics, participation/membership in organizations, or community involvement.
Scholarships are not just for students with a 4.0 GPA! There is a wide range of scholarship opportunities with varying eligibility requirements. All students interested in being awarded money for college are encouraged to explore scholarship options.
Counselors and our College Coordinator notify students (especially seniors) via email of new scholarships and upcoming deadlines. We may also offer scholarship workshops and events throughout the year. Students are highly encouraged to regularly check their PPS email for notifications and announcements.
