The Horace Mann Bond  - Leslie Pinckney Hill Scholarship allows Lincoln University to provide continuity from its proud past to its promising future.  Named in part for Horace Mann Bond, class of 1923 and the eighth president of the university, the scholarship provides full tuition for law, medicine-including podiatry-and dental education at  Temple UniversityPennsylvania State University, or the  University of Pittsburgh to eligible graduates of Lincoln University.  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has funded the scholarship since 1983 and restructured it in 1998 to attract highly qualified students to Lincoln's pre-professional programs and to increase the number of graduates entering professional degree programs in Pennsylvania universities.

Bond-Hill Scholarship Recipients represent the best elements of Lincoln's liberal arts and science-based undergraduate core curriculum.  Here is what the first two recipients have to say when asked about the program and their studies:

I am reminded of my duty to give back to the communities that have given so freely to me and motivated me to use my future resources to ensure such opportunities to other deserving students. This scholarship is allowing me to fulfill my dream of becoming a physician and has provided the resources that will allow me to one day make a significant contribution to society. I am extremely grateful for this honor.

I am one of eleven children, so you can imagine how tight finances have always been in my family. When I learned that I was going to receive a scholarship that would pay my tuition and fees for medical school, I was extremely relieved. It has also given me the freedom to concentrate solely on my studies and not on my mounting academic bills, a freedom that I desperately need.
