Putting a Face on Philanthropy

Albright's Annual Scholarship Luncheon, held in December, was an opportunity for Albright to thank the donors who make Albright's scholarship program possible and recognize the accomplishments of student scholarship recipients. Above all, it was a chance for many students and benefactors to meet each other face-to-face. More than 150 students and donors attended the event. In 2000-01 Albright awarded some $11 million in scholarship and grant aid. About 95 percent of Albright students require financial assistance. David Batdorf, Esq., representing the Martin B.

Albright Signs Agreement
with Harrisburg Area
Community College

In an initiative to give Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) students greater access to completing a four-year degree at Albright College, the two educational institutions recently signed a dual admission agreement.

Under the agreement, students who earn their associate degree at HACC are assured a place at Albright to complete their bachelor's degree, provided they maintain a 2.0 grade point average.

Albright President Henry A. Zimon, Ph.D., said, "The high quality of the HACC associate degree is an ideal springboard to the Albright bachelor's degree and we welcome HACC students in both our traditional four-year program and our Accelerated Degree Completion Program. We look forward to a continuing collaboration with Harrisburg Area Community College."

"This program is an excellent example of how higher education institutions can work together effectively for the direct benefit of our students," said HACC President Dr. Edna V. Baehre. "HACC's agreement with Albright expands our current partnership whereby our students can enter an Accelerated Degree Completion Program through Albright right here in Harrisburg and in Lancaster."

The agreement enables students to apply to both institutions simultaneously, as early as their senior year of high school. Students in the program can take advantage of financial aid opportunities at both institutions, and will have access to academic and career advising services as well as library resources and campus facilities at all locations of HACC and at Albright.
With campuses in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and Gettysburg, HACC has 11,000 students.
