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.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Pasco-Hernando State College Foundation seeks partners who will support student scholarships and strategic projects to advance the goals of the College and meet community needs.

PHSC provides educational opportunities through degree and certificate programs in healthcare occupations, business, industry and technology, and public service.

We take pride in our emphasis on workforce programs and help students obtain jobs in high-demand, living-wage careers right after graduating. Many of our graduates go on to more advanced degrees, but more than 4 in 5 return to work in the local area.

Every scholarship award changes a life because of the opportunities it makes possible. Not only have scholarships launched the careers of thousands, they give hope to many who never thought they could succeed or fulfill their dreams. Scholarships make dreams come true!

Our goal is to impact the quality of life and the economy in our communities by empowering people to achieve their dreams.

Enrollment at PHSC continues to grow, and the need for scholarships mirrors that growth. The Foundation employs an Executive Director, Director of Development, and Coordinator of Events and Marketing to continue to secure outside contributions for scholarships. We also have over 200 endowed scholarships which provide the majority of scholarships and operating funds.
We exist for the direct benefit of students and the College, and our mission compels us to continue to break down financial barriers and help them to achieve their dreams through education. We do this by developing partnerships and being involved and engaged in the communities we serve.

The PHSC Foundation currently manages over 200 endowed scholarship funds and over 40 annual scholarship funds. In the 2019-20 academic year, Foundation scholarships were awarded to more than 900 PHSC students, totaling over $1.1 million. More than $500,000 additional funds are provided to the College annually for faculty/staff professional development, technology and equipment, library resources, and more.

Our volunteer Board of Directors is committed to our mission and dedicated to achieving it with transparency and financial stewardship of donor funds.

We have been around for over 40 years, and as long as there are students who need support to achieve their dreams of higher education, our sound management practices and strategic partnerships we will be here to continue changing lives.
