Penn State cannot negotiate student aid packages to match grant and scholarship offers from other colleges and universities.
One in five undergraduates receives a University scholarship. Awards vary and are determined by donor guidelines. The average award is $2,500 for the academic year. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit or financial need, or a combination, as defined by the specific scholarship program.
Scholarship awards can be made by the student's campus (if other than University Park), college, the Office of Student Aid, or other administrative units. Awards are made to exemplary students and are highly competitive due to limited funding.
Students should pursue available scholarships through their campus or their academic college.
