PHCHF Diversity Scholarship Program

PHCHF recognizes that the strength of its membership is reflected in the many cultures and identities represented within its co-ops. PHCHF encourages applications from these diverse communities.

Our Goal

The purpose of the PHCHF Diversity Scholarship is to recognize people living in co-ops who are actively promoting diversity through work within their community. We want to help them with their post-secondary education by providing them with award money, credit counseling, and employment services.

The Scholarship

We will offer scholarships to students who are just graduating from high school, or are currently enrolled in post-secondary education or are returning to school or after a break to complete an undergraduate program.
