The scholarship, which is funded by the General Assembly, is named for two distinguished past presidents of Lincoln University and Cheyney University, Horace Mann Bond and Leslie Pinckney Hill, respectively, will cover full tuition, fees and textbooks for Diallo’s graduate study in in the Master of Business Administration program at Pennsylvania State University beginning this fall.

The program awards financial assistance to highly qualified graduates of Lincoln and Cheyney who pursue pre-professional programs in business, law, medicine, podiatry, and dentistry at Pennsylvania State University, the University of Pittsburgh and Temple University.
