Immaculata University has received a financial grant of $59,000 for the 2021-2022 academic year from the W.W. Smith Charitable Trust.

This year’s grant allowed Immaculata to award scholarships to 10 full-time undergraduate students. The Trust requires that the students selected be permanent legal residents of the Delaware Valley Area (Philadelphia and its neighboring counties) who are in good academic standing and have financial need.

Since 1978, the W.W. Smith Charitable Trust has awarded cumulative gifts of more than $1.6 million to Immaculata. Nine of Immaculata’s 10 scholarship recipients are natives of either Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery counties:

  • Josaleen Moyer of Malvern
  • Katy Newton of Exton
  • Angela Reichwein of Coatesville
  • Gianna Bedwell of Marcus Hook
  • Cori Harding of Brookhaven
  • Emma Markley of Ridley Park
  • Meghan Ricker of Holmes
  • Alexandra Bethman of Hatboro
  • Colin Foley of Pottstown

The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust is a private foundation established by William Wikoff Smith in 1977. The Trust makes grants in the Greater Philadelphia region to support basic needs, college scholarships, maritime heritage preservation, and medical research primarily in heart disease, cancer, and AIDS.
