We launched the PNC Student Lending Scholarship Sweepstakes program in 2015 to further support students by giving them a chance to win $2,000 to spend on their education expenses. We award a total of $24,000 annually to eligible undergraduate students who have entered the sweepstakes through their Financial Literacy account.
For graduate or professional students who are enrolled at least half time in a degree or certificate program.
