Protect Each Other Program for Continuing Education
The Protect Each Other or the PEO is continuously sponsoring the Program for Continuing Education or the PCE that will provide the needed grants for women residing in the United States and the Canada. These women had their education interrupted and they deemed it necessary to return again to school in order to give support to themselves and their families. This grant program provides assistance in the form of cash. The recipient of the grant will receive a mail containing the check of his or her award.
Up to $3,000 cash grants will be awarded depending on the needs of the applicants and funds availability. The cash grants must be used solely for the so-called grant-in-aid expenses with the likes of tuition fees, transportation, books, childcare and things that are necessary in order to attain the educational goal. The application process for the PCE must be completed in the nearest P.E.O. chapter in the region. However, the application materials such as the forms and guidelines are available at the main office of the P.E.O. Visit peointernational.org for further details or call them at (515) 255 3153.
