Delaware Valley University Student Selected for Prestigious National Scholarship
Jul 31, 2019
Nina Dellarte '21, a Delaware Valley University student from Larksville, Pennsylvania, was selected for the Jo Anne J. Trow National Undergraduate Scholarship. Dellarte, an animal science major, will receive the $2,000 scholarship for the upcoming 2019 to 2020 academic year.
Each year, Alpha Lambda Delta awards 37 Trow scholarships to outstanding students from across the country.
Selection is based on maintaining a 3.5-grade point average, academic records, participation in Alpha Lambda Delta activities, campus and community service activities, and the applicant's essay answers.
The national selection committee was faced with a difficult task as 74 applicants qualified. The Jo Anne J. Trow Scholarship was started in 1988, in honor of a past national president of Alpha Lambda Delta.
