More than $400,000 Awarded to Penn State Wilkes-Barre Students

Penn State Wilkes-Barre recently held its annual Scholarship Dinner, an evening to recognize the more than 200 students who received scholarships this year, totaling more than $400,000.

The event, hosted at Appletree Terrace at Newberry Estates in Dallas, Pa., offered students the chance to meet and personally express their gratitude to the many donors who have contributed significantly to the scholarships offered at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

Students are selected for scholarships primarily based on academic excellence, service to the campus and community, and outstanding leadership.
