Fifty Alvernia University students have earned competitive awards this fall to explore unique real world learning experiences. Funds are provided through the university’s Real-World Experience Award program – geared to expand students’ access to experiential learning opportunities in all academic areas.
Students applying for Real World Experience Awards receive up to $2,000 to support participation in a variety of opportunities, including Alvernia’s Washington Center program, undergraduate research, studying abroad, distance internships, alternative break experiences and service-learning.
