ursuline college


I feel blessed to have received Ursuline Scholarships which immensely lessened my load of loans. I am grateful to those who established the scholarships I received and made my education at Ursuline College possible.
- Mary McPherson '08

As the mother of two boys under age 2, I am not able to pursue my career as a teacher. Receiving this scholarship allows me to work on my Master's degree and maintain my teacher's license until I can return to the classroom.
- Mary Ruminski

By being awarded scholarships my dreams of receiving a top notch education in a supportive and caring environment came true. I am thankful for the scholarships that helped me come to the school of my choice, and grow into the person I've wanted to become.
- Samantha Scholtz '09

Without the scholarships I received here at Ursuline I would not have been able to attend college. The scholarships not only helped my financial situation, but also recognized my hard work and dedication.
- Sara Ilko '09

Ursuline's philosophy of values, voice and vision is the foundation for everything they do. Their philosophy has become my philosophy as I use the knowledge and wisdom gained here to make a difference. I know, without the generous scholarships I received, I may have grown intellectually but not with the passion to make a difference in this world we live in.
- Meghann Hess '09

"It is my decision to establish a scholarship fund in my will in the name of my mother, Dorothy Phillip Zupancic, to provide scholarships for female African American students. It is with gratitude to the Ursuline Sisters that I make this designation and with deep affection for my mother, Dorothy. Education is the key to one's future. My dear mother, knowing that, was my major source of encouragement in the decision regarding my higher education. The Ursuline Sisters were the caring instrument that brought me to womanhood. I entrust this gift to them."
- Lorna Kay, Heritage Society member

My daughter, Paula, was profoundly retarded and in her lifetime she was unable to be of service to others as all my other children did. Before dying of cancer in 1992, Paula received excellent palliative nursing care at Hazelton Hospital. During my own graduate studies I discovered that there were few scholarships for graduate nursing students. When Ursuline began its graduate program in palliative care, I knew that I could honor Paula's memory by creating an endowed scholarship in her honor for students in the Ursuline Palliative care graduate program. I am so glad that I did. Now Paula does help others.
- Joan Rosskopf Harkulich '53SJ

I was so touched a few years ago that two Ursuline nursing students, financially unable to continue in their education, dropped out to earn money in order to afford the next few semesters. I wondered if they would ever come back and I thought, "What a loss to the nursing profession!" I remember that when I was in nursing school at Saint John's, there was no way that I could have worked and gone to school. Given the dire need for nurses and the finances of many nursing students, I created an endowed fund from which students could borrow.
- Toni Trivisonne DeLeo '53SJ

As a physician, my husband Gus was very aware of the need for nurses and their special skills and, before his death in 1995, we discussed creating a nursing endowed scholarship. When I was a students at Saint John's, I was graciously gifted with the Bishop Hagan Scholarship. Our scholarship seeks to repay in some way that generosity. In doing so, we recognize the "giants" of Saint John College like Sisters Edith and Bernice, Msgrs. Haren, Navin and Moriarty who encouraged and demanded the best from us. It also recognizes Ursulin's commitment to continue and advance the legacy of Saint John College in its own striving for excellence.
- Barbara Gibson Gustafson '55SJ

We know that college costs are high and many students cannot afford to attend without assistance. Our endowed scholarship is meant to make Ursuline's excellent education affordable to more students.
- Jean and Robert Seaton
