The PCBA created the scholarship program to recognize graduating High School Seniors who have demonstrated community spirit and initiative. The scholarship program was established to raise awareness among high school students of the need to give back to the local community & school. As the PCBA has grown, the Board of Directors approved two $1,000 scholarships for the PCBA scholarship program.
Currently, both scholarships will be awarded to graduating Seniors who meet at least one of the following criteria:
______ Resident of Peachtree Corners
______ Senior at Norcross HS, Wesleyan HS, Paul Duke Stem HS, or Duluth HS
______ Child of PCBA Member (in good standing)
Applications must include the application form, a copy of the student's sealed, or official transcript showing cumulative GPA, an essay of 500 words or less describing why you are the best candidate for the scholarship and a separate page listing any of the following the student has been associated with, and give a brief description of your involvement:

- Personal time donated to Charitable/Humanitarian causes
Submissions for the applications must be submitted electronically to Scholarship@peachtreecornersba.com
The PCBA Juniors (formerly known as the Peachtree Corners Junior Civitan) are now a part of the PCBA Community Outreach program.
The PCBA is able to fund these Outreach dollars through allocating a portion of the annual membership dues and sponsorship dollars of our members and sponsors. In addition, the PCBA holds an annual fund raiser to raise additional dollars which are awarded back into our community. Each year the total dollars available to fund these donations is reviewed, approved and budgeted based on prior year’s income. As the organization continues to grow, we are committed to continue to give back to the community, representing all of our members within PCBA.
