Penn College Workforce Development Scholarship established

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- A scholarship has been created at Pennsylvania College of Technology by administrators in Workforce Development & Continuing Education (WDCE) at Penn College.

The Penn College Workforce Development Scholarship was established by Tracy L. Brundage, assistant vice president for workforce and economic development, and Shannon M. Munro, executive director of workforce development and continuing education.

The annual scholarship will benefit full-time, nontraditional – 24 years old or older – students from Bradford, Clinton, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Sullivan, Tioga or Union counties who are enrolled in the School of Industrial, Computing & Engineering Technologies.

Brundage and Munro have made pledges to fund the initial awards from the scholarship.

“Creating this scholarship was an important milestone for WDCE because of our linkages with area employers and the need to not only train their existing workforce, but to ensure that they have a continuous supply of highly qualified employees,” Brundage said.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the staff of WDCE to support nontraditional students who have chosen a career path that aligns with the hiring needs of employers we work with daily,” Munro said. “WDCE is proud to be part of the continued success of graduates of Penn College.”

Students interested in applying for this and the more than 200 scholarships administered by the Penn College Foundation may visit www.pct.edu/scholarships/ and complete the online scholarship application.
