The Board of Trustees of the Eberly Foundation are pleased to welcome you to our website. I’m sure my grandfather and father would be delighted to see us finally entering the digital age. Our principal focus during the past fifty years has been to assist area students in furthering their educational careers beyond high school. I hope that this website will be helpful to them in selecting a college or university at which they may apply for an Eberly Foundation scholarship. This website has been a work in progress for some time, and I hope you will find it easy to use. Here you can learn about the history of our family foundation and the colleges and universities at which we have endowed scholarship programs. If you are a non-profit organization applying for a grant, you can download an application form and submit it for our consideration. We look forward to working with all of you in the years to come. If you have any questions, or any suggestions for improving this website, please do not hesitate to contact us. –
Robert E. Eberly, Jr., President


2013 and 22014 were great years for the Eberly Foundation. Together with
our scholarship funds at out 27 colleges and universities, we supported many
of our local community projects. We funded the Fayette County Blind
Association with the purchase of equipment to test elementary school
children to determine whether they are predisposed to early onset diabetes.

We assisted the Connellsville Career Technical School in the purchase of a
van so their students would have transportation to continue participating in
local community projects. We continued our support for Pennsylvania Free
Enterprise so students from Fayette County can attend their summer camp at
Lycoming College to learn about the business world.

The Sisters a Mt. Saint Macrina received financial support to replace
windows in the Trinity Center. The State Theatre was given a grant to
continue their children’s series to provide shows for students in grades K
thru 4/5.

The Private Industry Council received a grant to install projectors in the
Head Start Classrooms in their new building.

CPR Anytime Kits were provided to the Fayette County Career Technical School
for students enrolled in the Certified Nursing Program so they can learn

assist local non-profits with their missions.
