41 Keystone Mercy Health Plan Members to Receive Scholarships from the Plan's Employees
Date:6/23/2009

Employee-Sponsored Program Helps Medical Assistance Members, of All Ages, in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware Counties Go Back to School

Philadelphia (Vocus) June 23, 2009 -- Keystone Mercy Health Plan, the largest Medical Assistance managed care organization in Pennsylvania, will be awarding scholarships, totaling $82,000, to 41 of its members, on Tuesday, June 23, as part of the plan's 21st Annual Member Scholarship program, which is funded by employee donations.

The program, which was started with one scholarship in 1988 in celebration of the company's fifth anniversary, is unique in that it collects donations from more than 1,500 Keystone Mercy employees. Since its inception, the scholarship program has awarded more than 700 scholarships, totaling more than $1.5 million in assistance.

The Keystone Mercy Member Scholarship Program provides assistance to young adults embarking on a college education and to non-traditional students coming back to school later in life to learn a new skill. Many have overcome significant challenges, including disability and poverty, to get their education and improve their lives.

Employees begin fundraising initiatives, which include company events and pledges, in March of each year and present the awards by June of the same year. This year, the scholarship program received more than 130 applications.

More than 120 Keystone Mercy employees, scholarship recipients and their family members are expected to attend the awards ceremony on June 23, at 6:00pm, at The PECO Building, 2301 Market Street, here.

Meg Grant, Keystone Mercy's Scholarship Committee Chair, believes that the success of the program is due to the overall mission of the company to help those in need,
