By establishing a uniquely-named scholarship, you have the ability to designate eligibility requirements including education level, the field of study, geographic area, etc. Many scholarships are established to honor parents, a family member, or someone who influenced your life.
Most scholarship funds at the Foundation are permanent endowments, with the annual earnings used to provide the scholarships.
One of the biggest benefits of bringing your scholarship fund to the Foundation is our partnership with the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and their Partnerships for Access to Higher Education program (PATH). The PATH program provides matching dollars to students attending Pennsylvania post-secondary institutions who have received a scholarship from the Foundation. These students must also qualify for additional PHEAA funding.
