PHEF recognizes the Pueblo Community as the driving force in supporting scholarships for students.
As part of the 'pay it forward' culture, we ask each scholarship recipient to provide 40 hours of community service when awarded a scholarship.
Students in the 2020-2021 Academic Year provided over 24,000 hours of community service, not only in Pueblo's community
but in the communities across the state of Colorado and nationally where students are attending colleges and universities.
Students are volunteering in food banks, nursing homes, youth centers, YMCA's, & religious organizations;
they are writing letters to service men and women serving our country, sick children in hospital care and the elderly living in retirement and nursing care facilities;
they are collecting food and clothing for the poor and fundraising for other worthy causes.
PHEF scholars are going above and beyond to support the community that supports them.
