Alvernia students earn Real World Experience Awards

Alvernia University students have earned competitive awards this fall to explore unique real world learning experiences. Funds are provided through the university’s Real-World Experience Award program - geared to expand students’ access to experiential learning opportunities in all academic areas.

Students applying for Real World Experience Awards receive up to $2,000 to support participation in a variety of opportunities, including Alvernia’s Washington Center program, undergraduate research, studying abroad, distance internships, alternative break experiences and service-learning. Importantly, the awards will not reduce the amount of any financial aid students already receive.

Kaitlin Didinger of Boyertown, majoring in Nursing, will use award funds to study abroad in Dingle, Ireland, in summer 2018.

Kira Lee of Barto, majoring in Nursing, will use award funds for a trip to the Dominican Republic with the Expeditionary Leadership Club in spring 2018.
