Central Penn College Education Foundation Awards $135,000 in scholarships
During the fall 2020 term, 156 Central Penn College students were awarded $135,000 in scholarships by the Central Penn College Education Foundation!
“We are committed to making a difference in the lives of our students,” said Sandy Box, director of the Education Foundation. “These scholarships can be true game-changers. For many of our students, these awards can mean the difference between staying and finishing their degree… or leaving due to financial concerns.”
During the 2019–2020 academic year, the Foundation awarded $243,000 to 288 Central Penn students. Students can apply for scholarships in August and February; awards are then given in the fall and spring terms, respectively.
The nonprofit Education Foundation has distributed more than $2 million in scholarships to more than 2,300 students since being founded in 2004. More than 80% of Central Penn employees contribute annually to the foundation.
“We are thankful for our many generous donors who are making a profound difference in the lives of our students,” said Box.
