Lycoming named recipient of $460,000 grant from Stabler Foundation

The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation has again awarded a grant to Lycoming College, this time in the amount of $460,000. This sixth consecutive grant won by Lycoming College from the Stabler Foundation brings the total gift amount from the foundation to $3.75 million, all earmarked for scholarships for especially high-need, high-promise students.

With generous gifts such as this grant from the Stabler Foundation, Lycoming College is able to bolster its financial aid offerings and fine-tune admittance practices, more selectively choosing talented students who best fit with the mission of the college, regardless of their financial need.

Students who receive the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Endowed Scholarship sign a letter of intent to support the students who follow after them with a commitment to financial contributions back to their alma mater.

"Our ability to continue to offer these prestigious Stabler scholarships at Lycoming College has helped us attract even more talented students to our campus," said Chip Edmonds, executive vice president at Lycoming College. "Dozens of students have benefitted from the generosity of the Stablers. For this, we are honored and deeply grateful."

The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation was established in 1966 for charitable, religious, scientific, literary and educational purposes, and makes grants to private educational and other institutions located in central or eastern Pennsylvania.
