Program 1

Student Scholarships

The PHSC Foundation Board has set standard amounts for Annual Named Scholarship awards at $650 per semester and $1,300 per academic year, based on the tuition rates and with the understanding that nearly two-thirds of students also qualify for some other type of financial aid. With our affordable tuition, Foundation scholarships of these amounts are typically sufficient to help the neediest students so that finances are not a barrier to achieving a quality edition.
