Scholarship Policy for Pratt County High School Senior Grant

The Pratt County High School Senior Grant has been established by the Pratt Community College Board of Trustees to provide tuition assistance for all graduating high school seniors who are residents of Pratt County or from a Pratt County high school, for the academic term (summer, fall, or spring) within three years of high school graduation. The grant will be given for an academic, technical, or health related program or for participation in an extracurricular activity or athletics.

There will be two levels of grants available. The first level of the Pratt County High School Senior Grant will entitle the student to a maximum of $350 per semester, not to exceed a total award of $1,400. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher. Recipients are expected to demonstrate leadership in community service/college service and must document a minimum of 20 hours annually.

The second level of the Pratt County High School Senior Grant will entitle the student to a full-tuition scholarship. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher. Recipients are expected to demonstrate leadership in community/college service and must document a minimum of 50 hours annually.

Community service may be performed at a Pratt County non-profit organization, K12 schools, service club and/or religious institution. Service may not be for an immediate family member. Students are expected to track service hours, which will be reported monthly through a “Community Service Tracking Form”.

The student is responsible for the remainder of tuition (if applicable), fees, and book costs. Students may apply for other scholarships offered by the college. If the total scholarship award, i.e., the Pratt County High School Senior Grant plus other scholarships, is $800 or more per year (which includes the Level 2 scholarship above), the student must enroll in and maintain a minimum course load of 16 credit hours per semester or 32 credit hours per year. Application deadline for the Pratt County High School Senior Grant is August 1 of each year.

Application procedures for students applying for the Pratt County High School Senior Grant are as follows:

  1. Complete a PCC scholarship application and return it to the Financial Aid Office.
  2. Complete the application for Federal Financial Aid. Applicants may be eligible for funds to cover additional costs for tuition, fees, and books.
