Peirce Students are awarded with the PATH scholarship

One of the hardest parts of continuing education for working adults is finding the money to do it. Peirce College offers a wide range of financial aid and tuition support, including a variety of scholarship opportunities that are available to both new and returning students. Peirce College is proud to announce that 10 students have each received a $1,000 grant from the PATH program to support the funding of their education.

“We are thrilled to receive funding from Ellucian to provide scholarships to our students,” said Brad Hodge, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Services at Peirce College. “The PATH Scholarship has helped us keep our adult learners enrolled who otherwise may have dropped out due to financial challenges, such as job loss, COVID 19, housing insecurity, and food insecurity.”

The 2022 Progress, Accomplishment, Thriving, Hope (PATH) Scholarship Program, established in 2020 by Ellucian, provides grants to higher education institutions globally to support students facing economic hardship and educational disruptions. The PATH Scholarship Program focuses on providing grants to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and all Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in the U.S, and eligible higher education institutions in Australia, Canada, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ireland, Lebanon, New Zealand, and United Kingdom.

Students that receive the grant can use these funds to help cover items such as tuition, food, and housing. This year’s Peirce recipients of the scholarship have used the funds to help with their financial needs as they continue their education. In total, the program has distributed more than $1 million in scholarships to 1,100+ students. Peirce serves adult learners, so scholarship opportunities like the PATH program helps to create financial relief while they balance work and personal responsibilities.

One Peirce awardee stated, “These funds would help release some of the mounting pressure to just drop out of college and work longer hours.”

Another student plans to use the funds to pay for their first course after they complete the Career Bridge program and pay for a subscription to so they can complete their general education courses. 

Peirce College is committed to making higher education accessible and attainable for all by helping our students fund their degrees through scholarships and other innovative solutions.
