Moravian receives Newcombe scholarships for non-traditional students

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Moravian College received an $18,000 grant for women students from the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation in Princeton, New Jersey. This is the twentieth year that the college has received scholarship funding for mature women degree candidates who have completed at least half the course work for a degree or certificate program. The college matches the Newcombe grant, thus enabling even more students to earn college degrees.

The Foundation also awarded a $5,000 challenge grant to augment the Newcombe Challenge Endowment Fund at Moravian.

Moravian is one of 36 colleges and universities in the Middle Atlantic region receiving a total of $1,057,000 to support second-career women and students with disabilities for the 2001-2002 academic year.

Students interested in pursuing degree or certificate programs at Moravian College with assistance from the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation may call the office of Continuing and Graduate Studies at 610.861.1400 for information and an appointment.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
