P.E.O International Philanthropies, or Educational Project
(PCE) was established in 1973 to provide need based grants to women in the United States and Canada whose education has been interrupted and who find it necessary to return to school to support themselves and/or their families. The maximum one time grant is $3,000 though lesser amounts may be awarded according to available funds and financial need. The grant may not be used for living expenses or to repay loans of any kind.  It also may not be used to pay past educational expenses, including those previously paid with borrowed monies, credit card or student loans. While grants may be used for academic and technical courses, they are not intended to cover the cost of prerequisite courses necessary to secure admission into the final program of study. Furthermore, a PCE grant is not approved for use by those intending immediate continuation of their education beyond the program for which the grant is requested: e.g. associates to bachelors or bachelor to masters.
