University of Pennsylvania Named Scholarship
See Description For Amount
- Scholarship Description
Like other Ivy League schools, Penn undergraduate aid is entirely need-based. The University does not award scholarships based on academic or athletic merit. Penn is committed to meeting your full demonstrated need for eight academic semesters with grant-based aid. To be eligible for federal aid, you must file a FAFSA, make satisfactory academic progress, not be in default on a Federal loan, and not owe a refund on a Federal Pell Grant or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG). International students are generally not eligible for federal funding. To be eligible for institutional funds, you must complete a CSS Profile and the Penn Financial Aid Supplement (PFAS), as well as submit the required federal income tax return information.
The University of Pennsylvania Named Scholarship results from the generous gifts of Penn alumni and friends who have chosen to help an undergraduate student finance their Penn education. Named scholarships are all need-based. Students receiving named scholarships are invited to a special event during New Student Orientation that explains the Named Scholarship Program in greater detail. You will be asked to write a short thank you note to your donor each year, and you may be invited to an annual reception either on campus or in New York City to meet your scholarship donor.
