    The University of Scranton received a $10,000 grant from the Robert H. Spitz Foundation to support its Business High School Scholars Program. The grant was funded in 2019. The Scranton Area Community Foundation serves as administrator of Robert H. Spitz Foundation.

    The Business High School Scholars Program at the University allows local high school students to take business and other courses at a reduced tuition rate. Students who apply should be entering junior and senior year with at least a 3.3 GPA. The students can apply credits earned toward a University degree, leading toward a path for an accelerated bachelor’s or even a master’s degree in a business area, saving them valuable time and money. Students may also apply for financial assistance with tuition and books, available through grants and the generosity of faculty, staff and alumni.
