2 The Lenfest Foundation is based in Philadelphia and was established by H.F. (Gerry) Lenfest and Marguerite Lenfest in Since 2002, the Foundation has provided scholarship programs focused on helping public school students from rural areas of Pennsylvania. The Lenfest College Scholarship Program for rural public high school students now operates in South Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania. The aim is to enable students, called Lenfest Scholars, to graduate from the nation s leading academic colleges and universities. You can learn more about the Foundation at: Visit to learn more about Lenfest Scholars and their accomplishments. A college education can be a life-changing experience. It offers an opportunity to grow intellectually and personally. It offers an opportunity to meet new friends and see new places. It offers an opportunity to find the road to success. When my wife, Marguerite, and I established the Lenfest Foundation, we talked about how the Foundation could help promising students succeed. One of the ways we thought the Foundation could help was to create the Lenfest College Scholarship Program, which offers a limited number of college scholarships to qualified students attending public high schools. Our aim was to focus on the more rural areas of our region, places that might not receive as much attention and funding as the cities and suburbs. We have selected certain public school districts and are excited about the prospect of helping the young men and women who are accepted in the Program pursue a college education. We believe that the recipients of the scholarships will find that college is a transformational experience, one that enriches them for a lifetime. You can learn more about the Lenfest College Scholarship Program on the following pages. Please tell your friends and neighbors about the Program. If you feel you are an eligible student, please apply. Don t let this opportunity pass by. Best wishes, H.F. (Gerry) Lenfest
