Clearfield Bank & Trust Company has made an additional gift of $5,000 to the Clearfield Bank & Trust Company Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. The bank has pledged to make annual contributions to the fund, which will be distributed in its entirety to qualifying students each year.
This scholarship provides recognition and financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate students enrolled or planning to enroll at Penn State DuBois who have superior academic records and a need for funds to help cover their college expenses. In an effort to support those in Clearfield Bank & Trust's immediate area, students from Bedford, Blair, Centre, Clearfield, or Huntingdon Counties will be given first preference.
Each year, more than $350,000 in scholarship dollars is awarded to Penn State DuBois students through over 50 individual scholarship funds. The scholarships established through the generosity of donors, with the assistance of the campus’ Office of Development, help to assure an affordable and accessible education remains in reach for area students.
Supporters like Clearfield Bank & Trust Company are invaluable partners in fulfilling the University's land-grant mission of education, research and service. Private gifts from alumni and friends enrich the experiences of students both in and out of the classroom, expand the research and teaching capacity of our faculty, enhance the University's ability to recruit and retain top students and faculty, and help to ensure that students from every economic background have access to a Penn State education. The University's colleges and campuses are now enlisting the support of alumni and friends to advance a range of unit-specific initiatives.
