Alvernia University is awarding the Trustees Scholarships which is valued at $23,000 per year for education costs in the USA.
Why choose to study at Alvernia University? Alvernia University has a vibrant intellectual environment where students learn, discover, give and grow as leaders with moral courage. Alvernia is a rigorous, caring, and inclusive learning community committed to academic excellence and to being and fostering broadly educated, lifelong learners, reflective professionals, and engaged citizen and ethical leaders with moral courage.
In 2018, Alvernia celebrates its 60th Anniversary, and in the span of more than a half century this small women’s college, founded in 1958 by the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters to prepare women religious for the mission of Catholic education, has become a regionally and nationally recognized comprehensive, competitive, multi-campus university. Under the leadership of a dynamic board and visionary president, Alvernia today remains a character-building institution that has remained true to the mission and vision of the founding sponsors, with a heritage and history that reflects the spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi.
Alvernia’s Mission Statement represents the ideal of a university education committed to academic excellence while developing lifelong learners who seek knowledge joined with love – a uniquely Franciscan perspective mirroring the intellection vision of a thirteenth century Franciscan academic at the university of Paris, St. Bonaventure. Our core values, collegiality, contemplation, peacemaking, service, and humility, create a learning environment that is meant to be formative and transformative, committed to service and ethical leadership, doing well and doing good.
The Bernardine Franciscan Sisters understood and valued higher education as a catalyst for change, growth, and human development, and without hesitation, they pooled together their meager resources to establish a Catholic Franciscan institution for higher learning in Berks County. The history of Alvernia University is not unlike the story of Catholic higher education in the U.S. in general, especially institutions founded by religious congregations in the 19th and 20th centuries. Alvernia’s foundation is built on a vision of liberal learning – preserved through the centuries from medieval universities to the present, respecting the intellectual traditions of the Catholic faith and Franciscan movement. The beginnings were very difficult, and hardships, scarcity, and sacrifice best describe the first years of this new Catholic Franciscan college in Berks County that struggled to survive. But the sisters’ will and drive to succeed never faltered – and students came, prospered, and found success in their careers and personal lives
