AAUW funds scholarship at UPB

The Bradford branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has endowed a scholarship at Pitt-Bradford.

The $6,000 gift made by the group has been matched by the Agnes L. and Lewis Lyle Thomas Scholarship Challenge.

The scholarship will be awarded to a local student who reflects the values and mission promoted by the Bradford branch of the AAUW. First preference will be given to a Bradford Area High School student, then to a student attending a high school in McKean County. 

The matching pledge from the Thomas Scholarship Challenge, which was made possible by a $1 million gift from Agnes L. Thomas, ensures perpetual funding of the scholarship and provides added visibility for the organization while strengthening its relationship with Pitt-Bradford. The branch will continue to fund a local AAUW scholarship for students related to an active member of the Bradford branch.

For information on the scholarship or the Thomas Scholarship Challenge, contact the UPB Office of Institutional Advancement at 814/362-5091.
