Marie M. Campbell Scholarship Fund
The Marie M. Campbell Scholarship Fund was established in 1990 for the benefit of students attending Cardinal Brennan High School. The annual earnings were paid to the school to defray
the tuition, in whole or in part, of students of Cardinal Brennan High School. It was the donor’s
decision, written in the fund agreement, that if Cardinal Brennan closed, half the earnings would
be distributed to Nativity High School and the other half to Marian High School. Ms. Campbell
created this fund with a $10,000 contribution, which was only a planned “tip of the iceberg”
because her Last Will and Testament provided a percentage of her Estate would be added to the
fund. The principal balance is $351,122.43 and the annual earnings will benefit the students in
perpetuity, which was the donor’s original intent. The 2008 annual earnings from this fund are $14,382.16 or $7,191.08 to each catholic high school for tuition assistance.
Miss Campbell was a lifelong resident of Gordon. She graduated in 1921 from St. Joseph’s High
School in Ashland and worked form Citizen’s National Bank of Ashland from 1924 until her retirement in 1987. Miss Campbell passed away on April 4, 1991.

The Curvey Scholarships and Fellowships at Villanova University
Throughout his life, James C. Curvey has demonstrated a sense of commitment and dedication
to both his hometown of Mahanoy City and to his alma mater, Villanova University. Since 1999,
an endowed scholarship program in his name has joined these two passions by providing
financial aid resources for talented young people from Mahanoy City to pursue their education at
Villanova. Strengthened through a bond of shared backgrounds and ambitious goals for the future,
these scholarship recipients have maintained strong academic records, built lasting friendships,
created a strong network of past and present Curvey Scholars, and developed lifelong values based
on the University's Catholic, Augustinian tradition.
The Curvey Scholars have made the most of the opportunities presented by this generous scholarship.
They have excelled in the classroom, led their peers in service to others, and prepared for successful
careers and rewarding lives. Through their Villanova experiences, current and past Curvey Scholars
have been able to define a set of personal goals reflective of their values, capabilities, and interests.
These goals have added purpose and direction to their academic experience and helped to shape
their lives after college.
Key Elements of the Curvey Scholarships:
- The Curvey Scholarships will provide four students each year with $12,500 in annual scholarship
assistance to support the costs of tuition at Villanova.
- Scholarship recipients must be graduating students from one of a select pool of high schools in
northern Schuylkill County: Mahanoy Area High School, North Schuylkill High School, Shenandoah
Valley High School, Marian Catholic High School, and Nativity BVM High School.
- There is no separate application process for The Curvey Scholarships. Each applicant to Villanova
University from the eligible schools will be considered.
- Scholarship recipients must meet Villanova's application and admissions criteria and must remain in good academic standing throughout their enrollment at the University.
The Curvey Fellowships exist as a unique complement to The Curvey Scholarships and provide
resources for a focused period of independent study. There are no set parameters for The Curvey
Fellowships, and students will be encouraged to take on unique projects and experiences that appeal
to them. This extended opportunity outside of the classroom will allow Curvey Fellows to maximize
lessons they have learned and explore interests they have formed during their Villanova experience.
Through The Curvey Fellowships, recipients will be able to take stock of themselves, test their
aspirations and abilities, view their lives in greater perspective, and develop a more informed sense
of concern for the community.
