The Health and Welfare Foundation of Southern Chester County, which administers the Alma Newlin Education Fund, is reminding students of the pending deadline for submitting applications for the one time undergraduate health care scholarship.
The purpose of the scholarship is to assist 1) graduating high school seniors who are preparing for careers in the human health care field; 2) adult students seeking higher education in human health care; or 3) previously awarded students in undergraduate studies, seeking post-graduate education in human health care.
The Alma Newlin Educational Fund was established in 1990 through a generous bequest from Mrs. Alma Newlin, a longtime resident of Kennett Square. Areas of intended fields of study awarded in the past include nursing, radiation technology, occupational, physical and speech therapies, pre-med, pre-dentistry and other related human health sciences.
The scholarship considers students who reside in the Avon Grove, Oxford, Kennett, Octorara, and Unionville-Chadds Ford school districts, and carry a 3.0 unweighted GPA. Applications are available online at www.HWFSCC.org under the Funding link. The deadline for returning applications is February 28, 2021 (all required documents postmarked on or before February 28).
