Josh Kennedy of Latrobe is among more than 660 students who earned named scholarships at Baldwin Wallace University this fall, the Berea, Ohio, campus reported Friday.
Kennedy, a graduate of Greater Latrobe Senior High School majoring in religion and English, earned the Blanche & Walter Hoffman Scholarship and the Mary & Hugh Burtner Student Prize in Religion.
Founded in 1845, BW has a long history of scholarship support from alumni, faculty, trustees and friends. More than 400 named scholarships provide more than $3 million to help students attend, persist and graduate from BW. In addition, they carry on the donors’ legacies through the lives of the students who receive their support. The scholarships vary in their requirements, with many specifying financial need, a course of study, involvement on campus or a commitment to excellence in a particular field.
BW grants a wide range of scholarships to current students each year. Including named, merit and need-based scholarships, BW students received more than $57 million in financial support from the university for the 2019-20 academic year.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Latrobe Bulletin prefers that campus news items come from the colleges and universities. Students must fill out a release form, giving the school permission to send the information to the newspaper. The students also must indicate which newspaper they want to receive the releases.
Only in cases where the school does not send out releases will the Bulletin accept information from the student, but a copy of the letter/program they received from the school and a parent’s daytime phone number must accompany the information for verification purposes.
