Marianne Able Scholarship
Marianne joined Philadelphia University in 1968 as a secretary in the College's placement office and in 1972 was appointed director. During her over 28 years with the college, Marianne had the opportunity to work with thousands of students, plus many college alumni. In addition, she built relationships with hundreds of companies all over America, many of whom continue to look to Philadelphia University for their introductory staffing needs, as well as for people at higher management levels. Her ability to forecast trends in a wide variety of industries was remarkable. Today, Philadelphia University is recruited by and actively prepares its students for virtually every employment sector.
Established in Marianne’s memory, this scholarship goes to a needy junior or senior dedicated to completing his/her PhilaU education.
