Penn State Brandywine has received a generous donation from W. W. Smith Charitable Trust of $48,000 for student scholarships. This funding will be awarded to full-time undergraduate students who reside in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties and who have a GPA of 2.5 or higher.
W.W. Smith has donated a scholarship to the Brandywine campus nearly every year since 1991, helping more than 100 students receive an affordable, world-class education.
"W. W. Smith has been a generous supporter of Brandywine students for years and we are grateful they've continued their commitment," said Director of Development Michelle Johnson.
The W. W. Smith Charitable Trust is a private foundation established by William Wikoff Smith. The Trust is specifically focused on areas involving basic needs for food, clothing and shelter; supplementing higher education scholarship programs; and basic medical research primarily in heart disease, cancer and AIDS.
