High school seniors who live in Poinciana or near-by communities (ZIP codes 34758, 34759 or 34746) have a special opportunity to apply for a scholarship for post high school education.

The Poinciana Area Council (PAC) offers four $500 scholarships to students. Even if you currently are out-of-zoned to attend another school, either in Osceola or Polk counties, as long as you live in those ZIP codes, meet other criteria and submit a 500 word essay. The essay topic is “Explain your educational goals and future career path. How will achieving your goals impact your community?” The PAC Scholarship was created to reward and benefit students who live in Poinciana. PAC celebrates and encourages the young people in the community while encouraging them to achieve their educational goals.
