Joyce C. Hall Scholarship History

In 2017, PTPI selected five students to receive the Joyce C. Hall College Scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Joyce C. Hall College Scholarship is possible through funding provided by a direct bequest from Mr. Hall when he passed. This program not only illustrates the importance of the People to People’s mission to Mr. Hall, it is also a symbol of the longstanding partnership between Hallmark and People to People International.

Each year, up to five scholarships of $2,000 are awarded to university students who have shown a commitment to the mission and values of PTPI. Since its institution, the Joyce C. Hall College Scholarship has supported the education of dozens of students.

Going forward, PTPI will be working to expand our exposure to college bound PTPI members and to increase the number of applications received. In addition, the organization follows up with scholarship recipients and shares their achievements both during college and beyond graduation.

People to People International and Hallmark should be proud to recognize the successes of these award recipients as products of shared efforts.
