Hilton Foundation was the Foundation’s third-largest grant in its history—$15.3 million over four years to Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania to expand the Higher Education for Sisters in Africa (HESA) Initiative, a program of the African Sisters Education Collaborative. As a result of this program, 858 sisters in ten countries will receive support to acquire higher education credentials, including baccalaureate and master degrees, both through online distance learning and onsite in Africa.
