Thanks to a $50,000, four-year college scholarship, funded by recording artist Mary J. Blige's charity, the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN), and the Urban League, Mercy College freshman Camry Rosario is one step closer to making her dream of attaining a college degree a reality.
Rosario, who enrolled in Mercy’s biology program this fall, says she selected the College because of its prestigious PACT (Personalized Achievement Contract) program.
“The Mercy College PACT appealed to me as soon as I learned about it,” Rosario says.
The PACT, a nationally recognized mentoring program, pairs incoming freshmen with highly qualified, full-time professional mentors who help students navigate through all aspects of college life, from financial aid to finding internships.
Dr. William E. Martinov, executive dean of student services and leadership, says, “The PACT is a cutting edge initiative in higher education. The unique combination of services and programs prepares our high achieving students to be the best candidate for the graduate school or job of their choice.”
Rosario, who meets with her PACT Mentor Avion Rhoden weekly to discuss academic, career and personal goals, has big plans for the future.
“I want to go to graduate school and get the job of my dreams,” she says. “Being here at Mercy will help me do that.”
“By utilizing PACT services, Camry is successfully navigating her college experience and planning for her future,” says Rhoden. “She epitomizes the objective of the PACT.”
Rosario is grateful for the scholarship funding, saying, “It will alleviate the burden of paying for college and provide opportunities that otherwise may not have been possible.”
Mercy Scholarships Provide Students with Millions for College
Mercy College is partnering with students to help alleviate the financial burden of paying for college.
