KENNETT SQUARE, PA — The Health and Welfare Foundation of Southern Chester County has announced its search for students who reside in the Avon Grove, Kennett, Octorara, Oxford and Unionville-Chadds Ford school districts to apply for the Alma Newlin Educational Fund scholarship.  This scholarship, previously granted in amounts of $2000 or more, is awarded to students who are seeking higher education in human healthcare.

Last year over $100,000 was granted to area students who received this scholarship. Award recipients planned to study fields such as nursing, medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, sonography and occupational therapy.

The Alma Newlin Scholarship grants one-time undergraduate awards to college-bound high school seniors, current college students, and adults pursuing continuing education.  Also eligible are students entering post-graduate studies, including additional one-time awards to previous scholarship recipients seeking post-graduate education in healthcare.  Students must have an unweighted cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher in previous studies and be accepted for study in healthcare-related professions.

The Alma Newlin Educational Fund was established in 1990 through a bequest from Mrs. Alma Newlin, a longtime resident of Kennett Square.  The fund is administered by the Health and Welfare Foundation of Southern Chester County.  Applications may be obtained online at under the funding link. All applications and supporting documents must be submitted electronically.  For questions, contact Dr. Logan at the address above.

All applications must be submitted by February 28, 2023.
