The Paramount Education Partnership (PEP) awards annual college scholarships to Paramount students attending a two- or four-year college or technical school. The amounts range from $1,000 to $4,000. Selection of the recipients is based on academics, an essay, outside activities, future goals, and economic need.

 

This year a record 46 scholarships were awarded for $144,000 overall. Nearly $1.2 million has been given to students since the scholarships began.
