The scholarship was established to help promote continuing education by providing financial support for college tuition payments for our high school graduates planning to attend a college or university, DiGirolamo told this publication several days ago.

The scholarship seeks to identify students who possess demonstrated qualities of leadership, good citizenship, and scholastic ability, is given to five Bensalem residents who are chosen by a committee from the mayor’s foundation.

“There have been years in the past, where we’ve awarded six scholarships because of the amount and quality of applications from students,” DiGiralamo shared.
