Student Scholarships

Student scholarships are awarded each year at the Student Send-Off in July to local students attending Penn State University, regardless of campus.  Students are chosen based on academics, financial need and a written personal statement.  The University provides the names of students who are eligible based on their standings and invitations to apply are sent in June via email and USPS.  A panel of alumni review the applicant’s letters, which are voided of names, and score them based on a standardized rubric.

Since 1993 our chapter has awarded over $55,000 in scholarship money through our endowed scholarship fund.  Activities throughout the year help to fund the scholarships we give.  In 2021, we were able to award 4 student scholarships thanks to the generosity of our chapter!

Please consider making your tax-deductible donation today!
