Murrysville club offers non-traditional scholarships for adult women

Patrick Varine

The Murrysville Woman’s Club will offer two $3,000 scholarships for the 2019-20 school year to women 21 years or older who live in Westmoreland County.

Applicants must be currently enrolled in college or provide proof of acceptance for enrollment.

The club has offered the scholarships since 1983.

“We try to make sure we look for people who are returning to school who don’t have access to normal scholarships,” scholarship chair Joyce Somers said. “We saw a need years and years ago for women who need to return to college, and there just weren’t any scholarships out there.”

Applications are available at all Westmoreland County libraries, at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, Penn State New Kensington, Seton Hill University and Westmoreland County Community College’s Youngwood campuses.

Applications must be received by May 15.

For more, call Somers at 724-327-8491.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
