AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA, WE ARE COMMITTED to putting educational opportunity within reach of all outstanding students, regardless of their financial circumstances. Named scholarships are the most reliable source of need-based aid for exceptional students from all backgrounds. Each of the named scholarships listed here help make it possible for Penn to fulfill its promise — supporting need-blind admissions with need-based financial aid.
Penn has benefited from the generous support of undergraduate scholarship donors for several decades. The parameters for establishing endowed funds have evolved over the years and are subject to current governing laws and institutional policy. Penn staff can help prospective donors understand the guidelines for structuring new scholarships.
