|Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Foundation Inc.
This scholarship has been founded by friends and family to honor the memory of the late James Hughes of Philadelphia, a beloved and respected leader of his community and a founding member of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Board of Governors.
Hughes Scholarship students are eligible to receive $750/per semester for four year (or eight semesters) as long as they maintain a 2.0 average, are in good standing with the university and provide the necessary documents requested each semester by the Hughes Scholarship Committee. Each semester, the Foundation will receive notification of all Hughes scholars eligible to receive funding and the Foundation will notify the universities’ financial aid offices.
No new Hughes scholarships are available for the 2014-15 academic year. However, students with Hughes scholarships from prior years are eligible to renew their scholarships as long as they meet eligibility criteria.
