Summer and Fall 2016 PJC scholarships available

Published or Revised January 11, 2017

Graduating high school seniors are again receiving a great deal from Paris Junior College this summer - a scholarship covering tuition for one class in either Summer I or Summer II semesters.

The summer tuition scholarship is available to those graduating from high schools in the PJC service area in Delta, Fannin, Lamar, Hunt, Hopkins and Red River counties.

“A graduating high school senior can take a core academic class that will transfer and save money,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin, “or take a workforce class that can lead to a career. These scholarships are made possible by many groups and individuals who have made donations to PJC this past year to help our students. They want you to be successful, and PJC offers great savings while getting a great education through small class sizes and personalized attention from our instructors. No student will find themselves in a class of 300 run by a teaching assistant at PJC.”

To help students succeed starting in the fall, PJC has again been allocatd $1 million in scholarship funds from the Paris Junior College Memorial Foundation. Scholarships for $1,000 are available for the 2016-17 academic year. Awards are already being made, so students should apply for those funds as soon as possible.

The link to the scholarship application may be found by going to http://www.parisjc.edu/scholarships. High school seniors wanting the summer class scholarship should enter “graduating senior 2016” in the scholarship application box that asks for “semester/year to attend PJC.”
