College Undergraduate Scholarships at Peirce College

Peirce Student Scholarships

Peirce offers need-based and non-need-based graduate and undergraduate college scholarships and grants to help students fund their educations.

Peirce College Scholarships, Grants and Awards

One way Peirce makes higher education accessible and attainable is by helping our students fund their degrees through scholarships. Please review the scholarship opportunities below carefully. This page will be updated every year when Peirce begins taking applications for these college scholarships and grants for the coming academic year. The student scholarships listed are available to Peirce College undergraduate students only (except for the Cederstrom Scholarship, which is also available to graduate students) and are used for tuition and/or fees only unless otherwise stated.

Please review the graduate and undergraduate scholarship opportunities below carefully. Many (but not all) of these college scholarships and grants can be applied for using the Peirce College Common Scholarship Application form. Some also require an essay and/or recommendation letters.  

Application deadlines for the 2018/2019 academic year will be updated in July 2018.

Please note: If you are receiving other outside aid and/or Peirce College funds that cover tuition your scholarship may be reduced or eliminated.
