Our Commitment to You

As the new VP for University Advancement & External Relations, my goal is to provide students, parents, faculty and scholarship donors with exceptional customer service.

During the 2011-2012 academic year, the Office of University Advancement implemented new policies and procedures to ensure that everyone has a positive and welcoming experience.

One of the first improvements has been the updating of the Scholarship page on the Cheyney University website. You can now find information about University and external scholarships by visiting www.cheyney.edu/donor-relations and clicking on the "Scholarship Blog" located on the left-hand side of your screen.

You can also check out the various scholarship programs offered by the Alumni Association by clicking on the "Alumni Relations" button on the same screen.  We encourage you to check the Scholarship Blog frequently as new scholarships and program updates will be posted on a rolling basis.

Another improvement we are making is to provide students with an official email notification of when your scholarship application has been received, processed and approved.

Moving forward, our goal is to post scholarship information at least several months in advance of the Fall semester, to allow sufficient time to apply and process scholarship requests.

We hope you like the changes we are making and the new direction we are moving towards!

We would also like to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of the scholarship donors who make these programs possible.

If you would like to make a donation to a specific scholarship program or you would like additional information about the General Scholarship Program, please contact me at (610) 399-2714 or nljones@cheyney.edu.

We welcome your feedback!

Nancy L. Jones, VP of University Advancement & University Relations
