Palumbo Charitable Trust Open Doors Scholarship generates a half million dollars
The A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust has given $150,000 to establish an Open Doors Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. Having made their initial gift before June 30, 2018, the trust took advantage of the unprecedented 2:1 matching opportunity that was available with the Open Doors Scholarship Program. This means the University matched the Palumbo gift with an additional $300,000, creating a full $450,000 endowment.

That's why they have established an Open Doors Scholarship as part of the University's current fundraising campaign, "A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence." The couple has also made commitments to support the College of Arts and Architecture, WPSU and Shaver's Creek Environmental Center through their estate.
