Worcester – Cornerstone Bank’s Charitable Donations Committee (CDC) is proud to have recently donated $6,000 to the Worcester State Foundation. This donation is the first installment of a 3-year, $18,000 pledge and will be used to help establish and maintain a new summer program at Worcester State University geared toward incoming freshmen students who need personalized academic support before starting the semester.
Named the Cornerstone STEM Scholars, this new program developed by the University will enable the participation of 20 freshmen students in the Bridge to Excellence: Summer STEM Retention Program. This program is offered to eligible freshmen students who have declared a major in biology or biotechnology to better prepare them for the rigors of these academic majors. The first program will start with accepted freshmen for the 2018 fall semester.
