Through May 6, PCA&D is holding its first-ever Scholarship Challenge! You are invited to participate in this all-out effort to raise $2,500 for scholarships for deserving PCA&D students. You can:

  • Make a gift
  • Honor a graduating senior, alumni or student
  • Challenge family and friends to join the campaign

For many talented and hardworking prospective students, the cost of a college education is out of reach without scholarship assistance. 90% of the students at PCA&D qualify for financial aid, and rely upon grants and loans to help cover their costs. 

Symone Saunders (pictured above), Digital Media class of 2019, had a lot of fears about going to college. She said,  “I needed courage to begin the process. I was afraid of not being able to afford it; afraid of getting denied for loans and financial aid. I was visiting with my family when I got the phone call from PCA&D’s Financial Aid office and knew I was taking a step in the right direction.

PCA&D equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for success at every level. PCA&D graduates from the past 5 years report a 90% placement rate. A PCA&D education is a great investment, and your gift will help make that education a reality for students with financial need.
