Concord University Receives $10,000 Grant from Truist West Virginia Foundation

ATHENS, W.Va. –  Concord University today announced it received a $10,000 grant from Truist West Virginia Foundation to support the Pathways Scholarship.

“The Truist West Virginia Foundation has been an outstanding partner with the Concord University Foundation for many years and we are extremely thankful for their continued support of our efforts. The Pathways Scholarship makes the difference between whether certain students are able to continue pursuing a degree or not, and that would not be possible without this funding.”

Sarah Turner, Vice President of Advancement

The Pathways Scholarship—supported by funds raised by the Concord University Foundation and matched by The Maier Foundation of Charleston, West Virginia—is awarded annually to rising or current sophomores, juniors, or seniors who are West Virginia residents and face financial need that could force them to withdraw. This year, $2,000 will be given to 50 students who apply and qualify for the Pathways Scholarship.

“We’re pleased to support The Pathways Scholarship. Truist is committed to our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities, and we believe the Truist West Virginia Foundation contribution to Concord University Foundation will help make a difference in the lives of many.”

Patrick O’Malley, President for the Truist West Virginia Foundation
