Penn College Scholarship to Reward Sustainable Lifestyle

A new scholarship fund at Pennsylvania College of Technology will benefit students who demonstrate a passion and commitment to sustainability.

“Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. It is becoming a core value for many businesses and organizations,” said Robb Dietrich, executive director of the Penn College Foundation. “This scholarship will reward students who not only take the topic of sustainability seriously when presented in the classroom, but who also put it into practice through their activities on campus and in the community.”

An anonymous donor established the fund with the goal of building to an endowment of at least $25,000, after which it will become a permanent source of scholarships through the annual Penn College Awards program administered by the Student Activities Office.

“Humankind’s focus on sustainability will grow in importance as we progress deeper into the 21st century. More and more, we will need to examine our practices, our buildings, our vehicles, etc., in order to minimize our impact on Earth and allow future generations to thrive,” the donor said. “This scholarship will reward those students who have great potential to lead the rest of us toward a sustainable future.”

Those interested in contributing to the Sustainable Lifestyle Scholarship or establishing a fund may send a donation to the Penn College Foundation, One College Avenue, Williamsport, PA 17701; give online or call the Institutional Advancement Office toll-free at 866-GIVE-2-PC (866-448-3272).
