University establishes scholarship and tuition discount to aid students and families
Alvernia University announces the addition of the Alvernia-Cabrini Completion Scholarship and a 20% discount for selected graduate programs for Cabrini students and their families affected by the university’s recent announcement of closure following the conclusion of the 2023-24 academic year.
“Higher education faces immense challenges with a changing landscape, and we are saddened to learn the news of the impending closure of Cabrini University,” said Alvernia University President-Elect Glynis A. Fitzgerald, Ph.D. “As an institution guided by Franciscan core values and our foundresses, similar to those of Cabrini’s foundresses, we have established pathways to provide a soft landing for students affected by this news.”
The Alvernia-Cabrini Completion Scholarship for undergraduate students provides $24,000 in financial aid to help reduce the financial burden for Cabrini students making their transfer decisions. In addition, Alvernia will offer a 20% discount for Cabrini graduate students transferring to most Alvernia graduate programs.
