WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Foundation is encouraging prospective fall students, including high school seniors and current Pitt students, to apply for scholarships between now and April 1.

According to PCC Scholarships Coordinator Kim Simpkins, the scholarship application period for the 2024-25 academic year opened Feb. 1. She said students planning to enroll in PCC courses during the 2024 Fall Semester should visit the PCC Foundation’s scholarship application website for an online application, list of scholarships, and answers to frequently asked questions.

Simpkins says the foundation’s online application system has simplified the process by using information students enter to match them with scholarships they are eligible to receive. That allows applicants to complete a single online form to apply for more than 160 scholarship options the foundation offers.

Before new students can apply for scholarships, Simpkins says they must complete and submit a PCC admissions application. She explained that the information they’ll receive after applying includes important login credentials needed to access the online application.

Once the application period has ended, Simpkins says the PCC Foundation Scholarship Committee will work with college Institutional Advancement staff to determine award recipients. She noted that government-funded awards and several specific scholarships, including the N.C. Education Lottery, Golden LEAF and Bulldog Promise scholarships, are awarded by PCC’s Financial Aid Department.

“We’re expecting to send out award notifications to student email accounts in May and June, so students can plan for fall semester,” Simpkins said.
