Stabler Foundation Scholarship Established

Stabler Foundation Scholarship Established

The University received a second grant from the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship fund to support students who demonstrate financial need and academic potential. The Stabler Foundation has contributed a total of $585,000 in grants to the University since 2019.

Recipients of the scholarship must be residents of Pennsylvania who are able to demonstrate their academic potential, financial need and eagerness for a college education. 

Mr. and Mrs. Stabler recognized the importance of higher education and had an unwavering dedication to providing opportunities for deserving students. They also firmly believed that the recipients of financial aid should be encouraged to “pay it forward” to help others have the advantage of similar assistance. The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Scholarship Fund has been established at the University in their honor. 

“The University of Scranton is grateful to be among the select universities to receive generous support from the Stabler Foundation. The structure of the scholarship endowment matches well with our core Jesuit mission and the characteristics we strive to encourage in our students,” said Jeff Gingerich, Ph.D., acting president.

The fund is uniquely positioned to be self-sustaining through the gratitude of the scholarship recipients. Students who receive a Stabler Scholarship are asked to pledge to make contributions to the endowment scholarship fund after they graduate. The commitment is more of a “debt of conscience” rather than a legal obligation with the intent of encouraging philanthropy in students who have received funding and support through the scholarship program.

The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation, located in Harrisburg, was established by Mr. and Mrs. Stabler in 1966 exclusively for charitable, religious, scientific, literary or educational purposes. Generally, the Stabler Foundation makes grants to organizations and institutions that are located, or provide their primary services, in central and/or eastern Pennsylvania.
