PHSC is among the most affordable state colleges in Florida. Unfortunately, some students struggle to pay application and graduation fees. Neither expense is covered by financial aid, which can deter enrollment or discourage commencement participation.

The President's Institute (PI) Class of 2019, recently established a President's Institute Engaged in Service (PIES) scholarship fund to cover application and graduation fees for students in need. The President's Institute is a faculty/staff leadership program funded by the PHSC Foundation.
