In 1865, Peirce College led the charge for providing career-based education for soldiers returning from the Civil War and was one of the country’s first institutions to embrace women as students.
Today, Peirce continues its tradition of serving the unique needs of working adults and employers through the ongoing evolution of programs that provide students with academic excellence, flexibility, and personalized support.
In addition to online courses, students can earn credit for college-level knowledge gained through years of work, professional and military training, and other experiences. Students can also embed industry-recognized professional certifications into their programs - and earn credit for those certifications.
Peirce College is constantly looking to reinvent itself as a way forward for adult learners looking to excel in career-based studies. The Peirce College Adult Learners Scholarship will support one student who is interested in attending Peirce College to maximize their potential in a career of their choosing.
All students interested in attending Peirce College, regardless of education level, are eligible to apply.
The application deadline is Sep 30, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jul 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 1 winner every year.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 1, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
