For Students


While many first-generation students make it to college, fewer than a quarter of them make it through college in under six years. PCF has developed a comprehensive and effective wrap-around program to ensure that scholars have an opportunity to succeed


Each scholar receives $3,000 per year, which is renewable annually for all four years of college. These funds help fill their financial aid gap and minimize student debt.


We carefully match each scholar with a trained college-educated adult who serves as an ally, advisor, and role model throughout college and often beyond.


Our scholars participate in intensive workshops that focus on how to navigate college and professional life to help them build the knowledge and skills to prepare for post-college employment.


We work with employers to develop summer internships, provide scholars with information on existing opportunities, and offer stipends to scholars pursuing meaningful unpaid internships.

2025 applications will be open in November 2024

We look for talented students with outstanding academic potential who will take full advantage of PCF's wraparound services (mentors, trainings, and internships).
