The Blue White Scholarship Foundation, first established in 1973, provides scholarship awards, mentoring, and networking programs to Villanova University undergraduate students in Villanova, Pennsylvania.

“We are honored to be named a 2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Kathleen Cellucci, Executive Director. “We are proud of our accomplishments, including having awarded over $2,300,000 over the years to 287 deserving Villanova undergraduate students. The lifetime impact of this investment will have a 720X financial impact to these students, their communities, and the world at large.”
This past year, 16 scholarship recipients were selected. All the scholarship recipients meet certain criteria that includes financial need, meaning the students must have exhausted all financial aid possible, as well as having excellent academic ability, superior work ethic, and a willingness to “Pay It Forward.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is the based on the ratings and number of reviews that are received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “The Blue White Scholarship Foundation is driven by good hearts. It recognizes ambitious students like me, who work multiple jobs, yet still fall short on tuition. As the last of seven children, I never had the luxury of a college fund. Fortunately, The Blue White Scholarship Foundation has helped meet some of the tuition gap, making my dream of getting a college degree possible.” says Rita Marino, scholarship recipient and Villanova University junior.
