Applications open for Pima scholarships

The Pima Community College Foundation is accepting student scholarship applications online through May 30. More than 50 privately funded scholarships are available.

Students must register on the Foundation’s Scholarship Tracking and Review System. Go to pima.edu/foundation/scholarships to begin the application process. In addition to registering with STARS, applicants must complete essay questions, apply to the recommended scholarships and email, mail or fax their unofficial high school or college transcripts to the PCC Foundation.

The Foundation encourages students to register for their classes before the early payment deadline, and then apply for scholarships. Early registration can help students avoid being dropped from their classes during the scholarship approval process.

Pima’s financial aid office will set the disbursement date for funds awarded.

Students with any questions about the application process may contact the PCC Foundation at 206-4646.

Anyone interested in becoming a STARS volunteer can email the PCC Foundation at foundation@pima.edu.
