The Anna Donson Memorial Scholarship

Given By: Dr. Paula Donson

Gift Amount: $5000

The purpose of this scholarship shall be to recognize and provide financial assistance to outstanding students who are attending The Pennsylvania State University as candidates for a degree in the College of Education or any of the Colleges of Science or Engineering. There is no requirement that students must attend the main campus of Penn State. Students can attend any of the Branch Campus locations or designated sites that offer courses for credit at Pennsylvania State University or its World Campus.

The scholarship may be awarded to those students who are pursuing a four-year undergraduate degree or a graduate degree at Penn State. Recipients must be actively enrolled in the Pennsylvania State University and can be at any step in the process of receiving their degree, from their first year to fourth year in an undergraduate program, or in any year of study for their graduate degree, and who are, to the extent provided by law, United States citizens.

The aim of the scholarship is to assist students from the Carpatho-Rusyn community who are affiliated with the Carpatho-Rusyn Society or who have family members that are members of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society. The Society provides its members with a shared community that is based on our collective experience of immigration from Eastern Europe to the United States. The scholarship wishes to encourage the excellent contributions that our people can make to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond the borders of the State. The scholarship also intends to accelerate the advancement of our young Carpatho-Rusyn population, expanding the development of our Carpatho-Rusyn citizens through higher education, and bringing new levels of learning to our community and to our people.
