In Leah's Senior Studio: Rick Price, Jackie Price, Megan Price, Leah Walt, Jacob Price, Jordan Price, and Evelyn, Sophia and Mason Price.

"It would be hard to explain the kind of person Mom was, but the person who would understand would be an artist," said Jordan Price, son of the late Cynthia Price. 

 J. Richard "Rick" Price and his two sons Jacob and Jordan, along with their families, created the Cynthia E. Price Memorial Scholarship, a one-time scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year, to remember her, an artist and craftswoman who worked, lived, and loved in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  

Leah Walt, a PCA&D Senior Fine Art student, was the recipient of the scholarship. She expressed gratitude for the family's effort in making her collegiate dreams easier during an opportunity to give the entire Price family a tour of PCA&D.

Apply for financial aid with the FAFSA starting Oct 1!
The FAFSA,  Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the online Federal application PCA&D and most colleges use to determine financial aid. It's also required for federal student loans.

Students may begin to file the 2018-2019 FAFSA starting October 1, 2017. Filing annually is required for financial aid, and filing as early as possible will allow more time to get your aid in place. Students applying and accepted to PCA&D will receive their financial aid information beginning in January.  PCA&D returning students' financial aid award letters will still be distributed starting in May, after academic progress is determined.
