Ensuring access and opportunity: Student scholarships

Ensuring access to qualified students is the number one priority at Penn State Greater Allegheny. Increasing our scholarship endowment is vital if the campus is to remain an affordable option for families, as well as keeping the campus competitive with other higher education institutions.

The average family income of students attending the campus is significantly lower than the average family income of those attending University Park campus, and the rising cost of tuition has had a major impact on our students and families. Last year, 87 percent of our students receive some form of student aid, most of it in the form of federal student and parent loans.  There are many students enrolled at the campus who are deserving of scholarship support, yet no funds are available. Worse, there are students who are not enrolled at Penn State or who are forced to leave the University because of their inability to fund their education.

Individuals interested in learning more about scholarships, including the Trustee Scholarship Program, should contact Arlene Fath at 412-675-9048.

We are sincerely grateful to the individuals and organizations who have established scholarship endowments at the campus. The campus' scholarship endowment is now valued at about $3 million. Each year, interest from the scholarship funds is used to support students studying at the campus.
