2013 ACADEMIC SENATE
For Transfer (or Transfer after Graduation) Students
The Academic Senate awards two categories of scholarships to those students who have attained an outstanding academic record at PCC and who have demonstrated service to the college and the community: These are the Dean’s Honor/Edna Plummer Scholarship, and the Keith Miller Educational Scholarship.
- For the Dean’s Honors Scholarship, you must have earned Dean’s Honors at PCC for at least two semesters and your GPA must be at least 3.7.
- For the Keith Miller Educational Scholarship you must have maintained at least a 3.4 GPA, have completed at least a total of 30 units at PCC, and plan to teach at the K-12 grade level.

Failure to include such information in your essay will automatically disqualify you for this scholarship.)
