Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Congratulates Lincoln Alumna, Bond – Hill Scholarship Recipient Dr. Adaeze Chikwem ’10
LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera sent a congratulatory letter to Dr. Adaeze J. Chikwem, a 2010 Lincoln graduate and recipient of the Horace Mann Bond – Leslie Pinckney Hill Scholarship program upon her graduation from Temple University School of Medicine in May.
“We are proud of your success and pleased that the Commonwealth’s Horace Mann Bond-Leslie Pinckney Hill Scholarship program was able to play a significant role in your education,” said Rivera, speaking on behalf of he and Gov. Tom Wolf. “You have our warmest wishes for continued success as you begin your residency training. Our heartiest congratulations on this outstanding achievement!”
The Horace Mann Bond – Leslie Pinckney Hill Scholarship Program (formerly the Equal Opportunity Professional Education Program) is funded by the General Assembly and provides full tuition, fees and textbooks. The program is designed to provide financial assistance to highly qualified Pennsylvania students from Lincoln University and Cheyney University of Pennsylvania who pursue pre-professional programs in law, medicine, podiatry, and dentistry at Pennsylvania State University, the University of Pittsburgh and Temple University, according to the state’s Department of Education website.
The program originated in 1983 as part of an agreement between the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, to desegregate the Commonwealth’s public institutions of higher education. The scholarship is named in honor of two distinguished past presidents of Lincoln University and Cheyney University, Horace Mann Bond and Leslie Pinckney Hill, respectively, the website said.
Chikwem, who graduated with a bachelor’s of science degree in biology from Lincoln in 2010, will complete a one-year general internship at Pittsburgh’s Allegheny General Hospital and her residency in radiology at Temple University Hospital.
Founded in 1854, The Lincoln University (PA) is the FIRST of four Lincoln Universities in the world and is the nation’s FIRST degree-granting Historically Black College and University (HBCU).
