Let’s not bury the lede: Scholarship displacement, the practice of schools reducing a student’s financial aid by the amount of the student’s private scholarship, is now banned at Pennsylvania’s public colleges and universities.

Banning this practice helps high-achieving students with financial need earn a college degree and graduate without mortgaging their future with soul-crushing student loan debt.

The community foundation was created to promote and facilitate charitable giving and to build a permanent civic endowment for Adams County. The community foundation provides a home for a variety of charitable funds, some created to support changing needs in Adams County, others established by donors including endowments directed to a specific organization or purpose, scholarship funds, and donor-advised funds, which may make distributions anywhere in Pennsylvania or across the country.
