Paris Junior College provides scholarships to qualifying students in two ways: the Paris Junior College Memorial Foundation, established by the PJC Alumni and Friends Association, has endowed several scholarships, and the college provides many other scholarships from within its budget. Additionally, federal programs such as Pell Grants offer substantial financial assistance to qualifying applicants.
All scholarship applicants must fill out the PJC General Scholarship Application and the federal Pell Grant application. All scholarship recipients must enroll for a full course load. Other requirements will be listed under the specific scholarships.

For students considering a four-year institution, transfer scholarships are available. Among those is a $5,000 Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science (BAAS) completion degree to the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Click here to find out how to apply for it.
