The Mayne Pharma Scholars Program (MPSP) was established in 2019 through a partnership between PCC, Mayne Pharma, Pitt County Schools, and the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce. It is designed to guide high-potential, STEM-focused students toward pharmaceutical careers, particularly with Mayne Pharma.
To be considered for MPSP participation, students must submit a PCC scholarship application by April 1, along with high school and/or college transcripts and Career Readiness Certificate (or ACT) scores. Fifteen applicants will be chosen as semifinalists and invited to interview and submit a letter of recommendation from one of their teachers. At the conclusion of the selection process, eight students will receive scholarships from Mayne Pharma that cover tuition, fees and books (up to $8,000 per student) to attend PCC five consecutive semesters for an associate degree in biotechnology.
