15th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating 15 Years of Success!

2020 was a milestone year for PCF in many ways. We celebrated our 15th year of helping low-income, first-generation scholars successfully graduate from college in four years and be career ready in their area of interest.

At PCF, we believe One Student, First-Generation, One Degree, Lasting Impact! We attribute much of our scholars’ success to our robust wraparound services: a four-year scholarship, one-on-one adult mentoring, training, and internship support.

Our Success

An outstanding 87% of PCF scholars have earned a bachelor’s degree within six years, over four times the graduation rate for low- income, first-generation students nationwide.

PCF has awarded over 440 scholarships to deserving scholars in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. Currently, PCF has over 240 scholars enrolled in 4-year colleges nationwide.
