Peirce selects winners for Spring 2010 Scholarship Competition

Everyone who has pursued a degree knows that one of the hardest parts of continuing your education is finding the money to do it. However, education is such an important investment in your future, and it is for this reason that we strive to inform all students about the vast resources available out there to assist them in funding their education.

For our part, Peirce College offers a wide range of financial aid and tuition support, including a variety of scholarship opportunities that are available to both new and returning students. Six years ago, we started a scholarship competition that now occurs twice a year and includes each of our three degree programs: Paralegal Studies, Business Administration, and Information Technology. Each program receives $20,000 to award to students.

On that note, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Spring 2010 Scholarship Competition!
