Wylonis establishes STEM scholarship at Penn State Schuylkill

The Wylonis Scholarship was established by Thomas Wylonis to provide recognition and financial assistance to incoming freshman undergraduate students at Penn State Schuylkill who are planning to major in a degree related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields and have demonstrated financial need. The student must have a high school GPA of at least 3.2 (on a scale of 4.0). First preference will be given to students who graduated from North Schuylkill High School in Ashland, Pa., and who have demonstrated leadership or entrepreneurship. If no students meet the first preference, second preference would be given to a student who graduated from a high school in Schuylkill County, Pa., who has demonstrated leadership or entrepreneurship.

This scholarship award is equivalent to approximately one-half of the cost of in-state tuition. This scholarship will be awarded for one academic year and shall be renewed for subsequent years, providing the recipient continues to meet the conditions of eligibility and funds are available. This scholarship is intended to be awarded to a student for up to four academic years and the recipient may continue to receive this scholarship if the recipient transfers to Penn State University Park to complete their four-year degree. While at University Park, the student would also receive an award to cover one-half of the cost of standard double-occupancy housing in addition to the one-half of the cost of in-state tuition.

Upon acceptance to Penn State Schuylkill, an application will be available for students to complete, followed by an interview this spring. For information about admission to Penn State Schuylkill, contact the Office of Enrollment Services at 570-385-6252.
