Deadline to apply for PET Student Scholarships has been extended! back button

The deadline to apply for a PET scholarship has been extended to February 12 at 5:00 p.m.

Are you a high school senior or the parent of a senior, or do you teach seniors? Making plans for college? Need $$$?

PET is offering $19,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors for use during the 2016-2017 school year. The applications are receiving numerous online "views", but very few completed applications have been submitted.

Please encourage seniors to submit applications for which they are qualified. The application process is less burdensome if students will answer the questions first in a Word document, and then cut and paste the text into the online application.
Applications must be completed in full with all supporting documents. Missing documents (transcripts and letters of recommendation) lead to disqualification. The application deadline has been extended to February 12th.
