PHC Alumni Association Tuition Scholarship



     The Patrick Henry College Alumni Association instituted this scholarship in 2008 as a way to help existing students afford the cost of education at PHC. Scholarship recipients are chosen through an essay contest each year. The essay prompt is generally released in the spring and students are typically given approximately one month to complete and submit their essay. Alumni Association board members read and grade the essays based on four criteria: mechanics, logic, rhetorical effect, and development of the topic. The award recipient is notified prior to the subsequent fall semester tuition due date, and the $2,000 award is applied toward their tuition.

 Deadline: May 21, 2014
