Security Savings Charitable Foundation creates new scholarship

The Security Savings Charitable Foundation recently established the Security Savings Charitable Foundation Trustee Scholarship at Penn State Hazleton, a new scholarship to benefit area students who attend the local campus of Penn State.


The Trustee Matching Scholarship program provides matching funds from the Pennsylvania State University Board of Trustees, resulting in larger scholarship awards to deserving students with financial need. This is the second scholarship established by the Security Savings Charitable Foundation at Penn State Hazleton; the first was established in 2002.


 "The Security Savings Charitable Foundation recognizes the role of Penn State Hazleton in the local area and the region and the important educational opportunities provided to students," said Peter B. Deisroth, administrator, Security Savings Charitable Foundation. "The legacy of Security Savings assisting residents of Greater Hazleton continues through the creation of this scholarship.


Penn State Hazleton Chancellor Gary M. Lawler said, "On behalf of the Penn State Hazleton community, we thank the Security Savings Charitable Foundation for supporting the university's new campaign, For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. The foundation established the first scholarship during the previous fundraising campaign, and the continued support to provide students with a pathway to success is greatly appreciated."


"Security Savings Charitable Foundation has been a great supporter of Penn State Hazleton for many years," said Kevin J. Salaway, director of Development and University Relations. "This is the second major scholarship established at the campus by the foundation and we are all grateful for Security Savings Charitable Foundation's continued support."


Scholarship endowments established at Penn State Hazleton generate financial awards in perpetuity for deserving students attending the local campus.  Trustee Matching Scholarships provide matching funds from the university resulting in the doubling of the financial awards generated.   "This program is a great way for a donor to the campus to double the impact of their gift," Salaway added.
