The grant was made in partnership with the Bucks County Workforce Development Board.

Holy Family University will partner with the Bucks County Workforce Development Board in support of a $1.3 million Aim & Attain Near Completer Grant that will benefit former Holy Family University and other Pennsylvania undergraduate students who were near degree completion, but withdrew from the University prior to obtaining their diplomas or certificates.

The grant was secured through the Bucks County Department of Workforce and Economic Development. The money was awarded from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.

Eligibility requirements include Pennsylvania residency, prior enrollment in an accredited higher education institution, disengagement from school without earning a credential, and a grade point average of 2.0 or higher upon exit.

“Holy Family University is thrilled to enter into this partnership with the Bucks County Department of Workforce and Economic Development as a tangible and timely way to bring our would-be graduates to the finish line,” said Holy Family University President Anne Prisco.

“The Aim & Attain grant provides an opportunity for students to redefine and reimagine their future by attaining  assistance and earning a sought-after Holy Family University degree and the benefits that this degree brings with it.”

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median weekly earnings for someone with some college but no degree was $877 in 2020 compared to $938 for someone with an associate degree.
