Summer Success Scholarship

The Summer Success Scholarship helps students who have fallen behind in their degree program and would benefit from taking a summer course to get caught up but have financial challenges to doing so. The scholarship is available to students at all Penn State campuses. Students who receive the scholarship will receive $2,000 toward their summer tuition. Eligibility requirements are as follows:

  • Enrolled in at least one summer course at any Penn State campus
  • Demonstrate that taking a summer course is necessary to get back on track for your degree program
  • Demonstrated financial need
  • Applications will open in the spring semester and be due by mid-April.

There is limited funding for the Summer Success Scholarship. Not all applicants will receive the award. Students will be notified by mid-May whether or not they have received the scholarship. Applications will be evaluated based upon academic need and financial need.
