other merit awards that a student may receive and is renewable for up to four
years. Qualifying students must have a 2.5 grade point average in the

“With college costs rising across
the nation, we know that affordability and quality are of prime concern to
students and their families,” said Dr. Livingston Alexander, president. “At
Pitt-Bradford, we’ve partnered with local schools in our College in the High
School program to ensure that students across our region have access to the
best in higher education.”
