Making College More Affordable

Scholarships have enabled Maura King to do more than just go to college. They’ve allowed her to dive in and get a unique experience she knows will set her up for success.

“The scholarship opportunities, especially renewable scholarships, were at the forefront of my decision to come to IUP,” Maura says. “Of the universities I considered attending, IUP’s abundance of scholarships, along with its excellent education program, stood above and beyond the rest.”

A native of East Brady, in Clarion County, Maura came to IUP because she hopes to have a career as an elementary school teacher, and education is one of the many programs for which IUP is known. But another factor was the university’s affordability.

“The scholarship opportunities, especially renewable scholarships, were at the forefront of my decision to come to IUP,” Maura says. “Of the universities I considered attending, IUP’s abundance of scholarships, along with its excellent education program, stood above and beyond the rest.”

Because of her strong academic work, Maura has received many scholarships at IUP, including the Board of Governors’ Scholarship, the Sutton Scholarship, the Academic Success Scholarship, the Jemima S. Boyd Scholarship, the IUP Scholarship, and the Professional Study in Education Enhancement Scholarship.

Some of these scholarships are funded by generous IUP alumni and friends. They know what IUP means to them, and they want today’s students to have the same kind of IUP experience.

Well on her way to a rewarding career, Maura has used scholarships to make the most of her opportunities at IUP and set herself up for a rewarding future.
