Pennsylvania Scholarships

With large urban centers like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, it’s no surprise that Pennsylvania features some of the country’s premier postsecondary institutions. Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pennsylvania are top private universities, and Greene’s Guides considers Pennsylvania State University a “Public Ivy” college.

Whether you choose to attend these institutions or one of more than 20 technical colleges or conservatories, financial aid is of utmost importance. Pennsylvania scholarships can help get you started with financial planning for college.

Popular Pennsylvania Scholarships

Institutionally funded scholarships can be a substantial source of financial aid. East Stroudsburg University’s Board of Governors sponsors two tuition waivers: the Scholarship for Cultural Diversity and the Scholarship for Science & Technology.

Similarly, Muhlenberg College’s Pennsylvania Scholarship is reserved for rural Pennsylvania residents. This merit-based award takes academic and extracurricular achievements into consideration.

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is also a good place to look for Pennsylvania scholarships. The PHEAA sponsors many financial aid programs, including the $1,500 PHEAA Academic Excellence Scholarship Award Program.

These are just a few of the scholarships available in Pennsylvania. For a complete list, visit our scholarship directory.

Applying for Pennsylvania Scholarships

Most Pennsylvania scholarships are reserved for in-state students, and some have even more specific residency requirements. For example, the May Emma Hoyt Foundation Scholarship only considers applicants from Lawrence County.

Some scholarships have other special application criteria, including interests or activities. Gannon University’s Diocesan High School Grant awards $1,500 to graduates of a Catholic high school in the Diocsese of Erie, PA.
