Scholarships available for seniors who plan to attend PSU

The Penn State Alumni Association Southern New Jersey Chapter has announced the formation of the Fellner/Ungvarsky Scholarship Fund. This scholarship honors Mr. Robert Fellner and Mr. John Ungvarsky for their many years of work on behalf of Penn State.

Current High School seniors who reside in Burlington, Camden or Gloucester Counties and plan to attend Penn State in the 2011–2012 academic year can apply for these scholarships. Applications will be available in high school guidance offices after Feb. 17.

This is the third scholarship fund formed by The Penn State Alumni Association Southern New Jersey Chapter. The other two are the Parent/ Gajecki Scholarship and the Michael Delo Scholarship.

The Penn State Alumni Association Southern New Jersey Chapter is one of only two chapters with two fully endowed scholarship funds. In his announcement, Jay Plunk expressed the Chapter’s desire to reach endowed status for the Fellner/Ungvarsky Scholarship in a few years. At that point, the South Jersey Chapter will stand alone among all Penn State Alumni Chapters with three endowed scholarships.

Contributions to the new scholarship fund can be made by check payable to the Penn State Alumni Association South Jersey Chapter, 19 Patriot Way, Hainesport, NJ 08036.
