The Alverina University is offering an award amount of up to $20,000 to interested students who need financial assistance towards their degree programme in the USA.
Why study at Alvernia University? Alvernia is a rigorous, caring, and inclusive learning community dedicated to academic excellence and developing widely educated lifelong learners, reflective professionals and engaged citizens, and ethical leaders with moral courage.
Alvernia University was founded in 1958 by the Bernardine Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis first as college for the sisters and then as a four-year liberal arts college. Many of the college’s renovated classrooms and offices had been used for elementary and secondary education before 1958. The college’s first building, Francis Hall, was built in 1926 and originally housed an orphanage. Alvernia received its charter from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1960 and was first accredited in 1967 by the Commission of Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. In 1961, the college accepted its first lay females students. In 1971, it admitted its first male commuting students, and in 1973, the first male resident students were admitted.
In 2008, Alvernia celebrated its 50th anniversary and was granted university status by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
