ABINGTON, Pa. — Members of The Bond Club of Philadelphia (BCOP) presented Penn State Abington finance major Anthony Quach with a $2,500 scholarship during a recent event at the The Racquet Club of Philadelphia.
BCOP selected Quach from among six nominees who attend area universities.
“Not only has this scholarship encouraged me to work harder in my last two semesters at Penn State, but hopefully one day I will be in a position to give students the opportunities that you have given me,” Quach, who is the first in his family to attend college, said.
“It’s terrific that The Bond Club of Philadelphia funds this annual scholarship ... to enhance opportunities for university graduates to be employed in the Philadelphia investment community.”

“We are deeply grateful that BCOP recognized the quality of Penn State Abington Business programs and invited us to nominate a qualified student,” August said. “It’s terrific that the distinguished members of The Bond Club of Philadelphia fund this annual scholarship to provide scholarship support and to enhance opportunities for University graduates to be employed in the Philadelphia investment community.”
Penn State alumnus Howard Trauger, class of 1965, managing director of Carnegie Investment Counsel and president of BCOP, presented the check to Quach.
