Equity & Leadership Scholarships

Established in 2020, PNCA’s Equity and Leadership Scholarships are a series of scholarship awards for Black, Indigenous, and non-Black students of color and students who have demonstrated a commitment to working with impacted communities to end racial injustice. Awards range from $5,000 to full tuition coverage and are renewable for up to five consecutive years for undergraduate students and up to two consecutive years for graduate students.

Your Participation Matters

Whether spreading the word, making a gift or re-connecting with PNCA – your involvement is vital in maintaining this momentum of support.

Every participant makes a difference in our collective ability to build a diverse, supportive, inclusive, and equitable culture in which all voices are empowered and where Black students, Indigenous students, and students of color are set up to thrive
