Berks County Resident Selected for Presidential Scholarship
Immaculata University is pleased to announce that incoming freshman Julia Coppa of Birdsboro, PA, has been awarded the Presidential Scholarship, a full tuition scholarship worth $33,280 per year, to attend Immaculata.
As a Music Therapy major, Coppa acknowledges that music has always been a part of her life and she wants to pursue music in a way that would serve others.
The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to a select number of students with a record of academic excellence. Students are evaluated on the bases of GPA (students must maintain a 3.25 GPA), class rigor, standardized test scores, class rank, and recommendations. There are three recipients of the Presidential Scholarship this year.
Coppa attended Regina Luminis High School where she was vice president of Student Council and the Pro-Life Club. Actively involved in her parish, St. Benedict’s, Coppa coordinated various events for St. Benedict’s Sacred Heart Nights. She also volunteered at soup kitchens, attended a mission trip, and participated in a beach outreach for Generation Life.
“I could not be more grateful to be named a Presidential Scholar and I promise that I will not disappoint those who thought me worthy of it,” stated Coppa. “I’m very excited to pursue knowledge without the hindrance or distraction of debt and that will encourage me to pursue a master’s degree, and perhaps a doctoral degree”
Immaculata University is a comprehensive, Catholic, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
