Scholarship opportunities

The Imagine America Foundation (IAF) has been serving the career college community since 1982 and provides high school scholarships for graduating seniors, scholarships for adults and grants for military. You could be eligible to receive a scholarship or award.

Each year, the mikeroweWORKS Foundation looks for the next generation of aspiring workers who will work smart and hard. The Work Ethic Scholarship Program doesn’t focus on test scores, grades, or grammar. It’s about the people who share our values and understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude.

PCI Scholarships

High school students interested in a PCI career training program can apply for either our Beacon-Skilled Trades Scholarships or Beacon-Health and Technology Scholarships.
