$3K PCE Grants Available For Women to Complete Their Degree or Certification

Women recipients of PCE grants

The P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education (PCE) is intended to provide one-time need-based grants to women who are citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States or Canada for use in completing a degree or certification necessary for improving or gaining skills leading to employment.

Grant Requirements: 

  • The maximum grant is $3,000. 
  • Lesser amounts may be awarded based on funds available in the current year’s grant budget and applicants’ individual needs. 
  • Grants will not be awarded for prerequisite courses or to those needing or choosing immediate continuation of their education beyond the current program for which the grant is requested.
  • A PCE grant is not to be used for living expenses or to repay educational loans or personal debt. 
A PCE grant is a grant-in-aid for education-related expenses such as tuition, books, supplies, testing and graduation fees, transportation (only for the estimated cost of gas, parking, and local bus fare, not for auto loan payments or maintenance), and childcare (only while in class or studying).

It also covers uniforms required by the educational program and equipment/tools necessary for the course of study. Grants may be awarded for academic or technical courses including online programs offered by educational institutions in the United States or Canada.
