Cheyney, PA (August 6, 2010). Cheyney University graduates have been very successful with graduate school placement and Cheyney University has more students participating than ever before in the Bond Hill Graduate program. The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) recently released data concerning the number of Cheyney University and Lincoln University students who were the recipients of the Horace Mann Bond – Leslie Pinckney Hill Scholarship. According to PDE, nineteen Cheyney University students will receive the Bond-Hill Scholarship for the 2010-2011 academic year. A total of twenty-eight scholarships were awarded this year.

The Bond-Hill Scholarship provides full scholarships for eligible Cheyney University and Lincoln University graduates continuing their studies in professional programs. The program is designed to attract highly qualified students to a wide array of professional programs, including law, medicine, podiatry, dentistry, as well as the Masters' Degrees in Business Administration, Public Administration, Health Administration, and the Doctorate of Education (Ed. D). Eligible students may receive a full tuition scholarship, books and fee-waivers.

Student placement in graduate programs is a key indicator of strength in a University’s academic and student support programs. The Keystone Honors Academy has been actively involved in assisting students prepare for post-baccalaureate work, and with the strong academic foundations established through coursework in their disciplines, our students have become increasingly more successful with placement. Funded through the Bond-Hill Scholarship Program, the Honors Academy hosted several activities during throughout the academic year which were designed to assist students in preparing for post baccalaureate work. Activities included graduate school visitations, graduate school fairs, support for preparatory courses for entrance examinations, and ongoing advising to assist in graduate school selection and application. The Bond-Hill Graduate School Fair drew over 150 student participants, and graduate programs at the University of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania State University, and Temple University were represented at this event.
