Deadline extended for Peninsula College scholarship application period

Posted

The Peninsula College Foundation has extended its application deadline for dozens of scholarships.

The new deadline is May 9 for non-nursing program scholarships. 

Scholarships are available for students attending Peninsula College in 2021 through 2022 that total more than $100,000.

Typical awards are $1,000 or more for a variety of educational programs, with several full-tuition scholarships available.  Graduating high school seniors and returning Peninsula College students are encouraged to apply, as are returning or first-time adult students.

“The exceptional programs at Peninsula College are a great value, and we can help alleviate the financial stress students may feel as they pursue their education,” said Getta Workman, executive director of the foundation.

Other Washington colleges have extended their scholarship deadline because of fewer applicants than normal, Workman added, and said the pandemic is having a profound impact on students and families in the community.

To apply for Peninsula College Foundation scholarships, visit www.theWashBoard.org.

Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as many scholarships require letters of recommendation, personal essays, and unofficial transcripts. Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.

Award notifications for general scholarships will be provided to applicants beginning June 7. 

Nursing scholarship applications are due July 18, and awardees will be notified beginning July 26.
