2017/18 UBPN Scholarship winner!

UBPN would like to congratulate Sarah Kristophel, the recipient of our first 2017 Academic Scholarship! 

Sarah is finishing her degree in Public Health with a double minor in Business Administration and Psychology at Slippery Rock University in PA.  Sarah chose her major because she is eager to enter the health education field.  She believes she has the experience to relate to others and is hopeful to use her injury as a teaching tool.  Specifically, Sarah will use this scholarship to pay for her Certified Education Specialist Exam and its course book.

All scholarship applications were evaluated based on a set of criteria including a personal essay and letters of recommendation. Being the first year for our scholarship, our Scholarship Committee is excited to watch the applicant pool grow.  

Please continue to follow UBPN for information about next years 2018/2019 scholarships, including application criteria and deadlines. The application period for these scholarships will begin on February 1, 2018 and close on June 1, 2018.
