What is PATH and how does it help students?

What is PATH?
PATH is a program created by the Commonwealth to inspire private donors to provide financial support to students through partnerships with approved organizations like CFA. The annual allocation is used to match award dollars for certain students receiving Foundation scholarships.

Who benefits?
Our scholarship winners who are attending an accredited school within the state of Pennsylvania, are receiving a PHEAA grant, and have a certain amount of unmet need are considered eligible for the PATH Match.

What does this mean for donors?
Since the PATH Program can potentially double scholarship awards for students, it furthers your charitable intention of supporting higher education. Interested in opening a scholarship fund? Contact CFA’s Donor Services Associate Marisa Lehman at 814-225-1266 or [email protected].
