Campus Scholarships

All Penn State campuses award scholarships to eligible first-year students based on academic performance, SAT/ACT scores, financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), leadership, and community service.

Scholarship award values range from $800 to $2,000 per academic year. Campus scholarship awarding for both first-year and current students begins as early as December and continues through July.
