First campus Trustee Scholarships awarded
Thirteen students at Penn State Wilkes-Barre were among the first to reap the benefits of the Trustee Scholarship Program, established by the University in July, 2002. The University’s Board of Trustees created this program as a five-year, $100 million scholarship initiative, that matches trustee scholarship contributions dollar for dollar, thereby significantly increasing monetary aid for students.
Penn State Wilkes-Barre currently has three Trustee Scholarships thanks to the generosity of Robert and Shirley Fortinsky, David and Deborah Reese, and the Penn State Bookstore. Recipients of all campus scholarships were recently honored at a dinner at Apple Tree Terrace in Dallas.
