Portal Tips: 

  • You will create a log-in the first time you access this portal. Make sure to remember the email address and password you use.

  • Scholarships can be left in "Draft" as you work to complete them. You do not need to start over each time.

  • Once a scholarship is saved as "Final," the scholarship can be copied so that all of the "Applicant Information" automatically populates for the next scholarship.

  • You will change the scholarship you are applying for in the "Eligibility" tab.

  • Do not try to copy a "Draft" scholarship. It will not let you change the eligibility.

  • Review the scholarship requirements for each scholarship you are interested in ahead of time on www.pefmc.org. Some scholarships have essays, recommendation letters and other additional requirements.

  • All scholarships require the Grade Report Form. This form can be downloaded HERE or on the main Foundation Scholarship page at https://pefmc.org/scholarships/  

  • You will only have to upload the Grade Report Form once, as it will auto-populate after you save at least one scholarship as "Final."

  • Please note all applications require the FAFSA SARS page; however, not all scholarships are based on financial need.
