Financial Aid

A college education is one of the most important investments one can make. Penn State offers a variety of financial aid programs to help students meet their educational expenses. The number of awards is limited and the competition is strong. The types of aid offered by the university such as fellowships, scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study, are discussed in detail at the Office of Student Aid website. In addition, the Department and College of Engineering offer financial assistance in the form of scholarships and awards.
