La Salle University Offers Scholarship
for Residents of City Council’s Eighth District

La Salle University is providing a scholarship in its evening division to residents of the City Council’s Eighth District in Northwest Philadelphia, represented by Councilwoman Donna Reed Miller. The University already provides a scholarship for district residents who attend the university on a full-time basis in its day division.

Applications for the evening division scholarship are due by August 1. In addition to being a resident of the district, applicants must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in the undergraduate evening program at La Salle. If currently enrolled, the applicant must be in good academic standing. A personal essay is also required.

The amount of the scholarship will be assessed on the applicant’s financial situation. It is possible that more than one scholarship will be given.

“This is one more way we want to demonstrate our commitment to the surrounding neighborhood,” said Ray Ricci, Vice President for Enrollment Services at La Salle. “The La Sallian tradition has always been one of helping people improve their lives through education, and this scholarship certainly meets that tradition.”
