Due to Paul D. Camp Community College migrating to a new automated scholarship application system, the college will be accepting paper applications for the fall 2018 semester. The window for applying opened Wednesday, April 18, and will continue until Wednesday, May 16, at 11:59 p.m. New and continuing students, as well as high school students can apply for a number of funding opportunities beginning that day.

“Thanks to the generosity of many selfless donors, we are able to assist our students with funding that will enable them to continue their education goals,” said Dr. Renee Felts, executive director of the PDCCC Foundation and vice president for institutional advancement and workforce development. “We are so grateful for all of the philanthropic members of our community who believe in investing in our future through our students.”

Just during the spring 2017 semester, PDCCC awarded students $39,850 in scholarships, which included dual enrollment awards.

A number of scholarships for new and continuing students is available for the fall 2018 semester. Students may apply for these regardless if they have previously applied for scholarships in the spring as long as they meet the criteria listed for each award.

Scholarships are also available for graduating high school students, as well as Dual Enrollment Camp Opportunity Scholarships (DECOS) for high school juniors and seniors.

Students should email scanned applications, along with any other required documents, to Stacy Pauley in the Office for Institutional Advancement at spauley@pdc.edu.
