Scholarships

The PCC Foundation awards more than 100 scholarships to deserving students each year.  The Scholarship Program was established in 1981 by the children of R. D. Bumpass, the late Jane Carver Bumpass and the Cavel Division of Collins & Aikman Corporation.  Through the benevolence of numerous corporations, businesses, civic organizations and individuals, the Scholarship Program continues to grow and serve. 

Special thanks to our partners at Duke Energy for sponsoring our Scholarship Program this year!
