Two Manor College students, Vera Lewis and Lineth Ciciliano, have been named semi-finalists for the Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. Sponsored by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the scholarship is available to students working toward two-year degrees, and supports high-achieving students as they transfer to four-year schools.
The semifinalists were selected from a pool of nearly 1,500 students across the country. Lewis and Ciciliano, who are both studying in the pre-nursing program at Manor, represent two out of eight finalists chosen from the state of Pennsylvania. Scholarship winners are selected based on achievement, academic prowess, financial need, service and demonstrated leadership.
Students who win the scholarship will receive financial support for their studies and textbooks, as well as academic advising, college planning services, and more. Four Manor College students have previously won this distinguished scholarship.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
