  • Math & Computer Science Scholarships


Following his retirement after 31 years as a professor in the Math and Computer Science Department, Dr. Nair established an annual scholarship award which has provided financial assistance to Mathematics and/or Computer Science Majors.  Dr. Nair has pledged to provide the Edinboro University Foundation with a gift to endow this scholarship.  Awards are to be provided to a student who is recommended by the faculty of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department under the direction of the Department Chair. The student must be a Mathematics or Computer Science Major. The student must have completed a minimum of 36 credits, maintain an overall QPA of 2.0 and a B+ average in a mathematics or computer science curriculum.


Dennis R. Frampton, a 1989 Edinboro graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Trades Leadership, is president of  C&J Industries, a Crawford County plastics manufacturer and product design company specializing in complex, high-precision injection molded components and assemblies. As a member of the Edinboro University Foundation for more than a decade, Dennis served four years as its chair and his leadership efforts helped develop the $115 million Highlands at Edinboro University student housing complex. Preference will be made to those persons working full-time while pursuing a degree. The eligible candidate must be enrolled or enrolling in a degree-seeking program and may be a full-time or part-time student.


Mr. Stephen Congdon is currently employed at Hewlett Packard (HP) Enterprise Solutions as a Software Developer. Preference will be given to students who have a minimum 1000 SAT score.  If an SAT score is unavailable, then the award may be made to a student who graduated in the top 20% of their high school class.  The award may be made to a full-time student.  The Scholarship Committee may select one or more persons for a scholarship award.  The award may be renewable if the student maintains a 3.0 QPA. Financial need may be considered but is not a limiting factor.  A student with financial need must first apply for financial aid before receiving this scholarship. Student must be majoring in Mathematics or Science. Student must have completed 30 credit hours.


This scholarship fund provides 6 annual awards to mathematics majors that have a minimum earned QPA of 3.4. Candidates must have 550 SAT score in math. High school class rank, grade average, and the high school program are also considered.  Financial need is not a factor.


Both employees of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Ms. Patricia A. Hillman is a professor of Math and Computer Science and Dr. Jerra Jenrette is a professor of History.  At the time this scholarship was created, each was also the chairwoman of their respective departments.  Trish and Jerra wanted to create this scholarship to assist a deserving female student studying for a career in a field not typically populated by women. The successful candidate must be a traditional freshman or a non-traditional first-time college student, with preference given to a female student. The traditional freshman recipient must have had a high school grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent “B” average.


Mrs. Patricia R. Jarvis was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, and served in the U.S. Navy WAVES during the latter part of WWII.  In 1946 Patricia applied to and was accepted by Edinboro State Teachers College.  While in the registration line that September, she met her soon-to-be husband, Arthur Jarvis.  They were engaged in December of 1946 and married on May 31, 1947.  The annual award will alternate between an Art Education major and a Secondary Education major in physics, chemistry, or mathematics. The eligible candidate must be enrolled or enrolling in a degree-seeking program.


This scholarship was developed by alumni, faculty, administrators, and friends of the University.  It provides an award to a freshman majoring in mathematics or computer science, or secondary education mathematics. The recipient must: be a Pennsylvania resident, have graduated in the top 20 percent of his/her high school class, and have scored a minimum of 550 on the mathematics portion of his/her SAT. Financial need is not a factor. This scholarship can only be awarded during the Fall and/or Spring semesters.
