Lycoming College receives additional Stabler Foundation grant for scholarship support

Lycoming College has received a $700,000 grant from The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation of Harrisburg, to provide scholarship support for students with financial need.

The grant will augment the college’s existing Stabler Endowed Scholarship Fund, established in 2011 with a $1 million grant from the foundation.

“We are grateful to the Stabler Foundation for this generous gift and delighted to build upon our mutual commitment to providing college access to students who come from families with financial need,” said President Kent Trachte. “As a result of this gift, Lycoming College will have the ability to increase the scholarships that we award to academically promising students.”

In keeping with the vision of the Stablers, recipients of the Stabler Scholarship sign a letter of intent acknowledging a “debt of conscience,” which is a moral obligation to support the students who will follow them at Lycoming by making financial contributions to their alma mater in years to come.

The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation was established in 1966 exclusively for charitable, religious, scientific, literary or educational purposes.
