If you are selected to receive a scholarship from Pennsylvania College of Technology or the Penn College Foundation, you will receive written notification from the College. In most cases, you will be notified before the start of the semester; under some circumstances, notification may not be possible until mid-semester. Due to the large number of applications we receive, no notification will be sent to applicants who are not selected. See online application to the left.
A student scholarship, unlike a student loan, does not have to be repaid upon graduation. Money awarded in a scholarship is a gift to students who are selected from applicants who meet eligibility requirements.
Pennsylvania College of Technology has an aggressive scholarship program to address the financial concerns of students. During the 2011-12 academic year, Penn College awarded $953,565 in scholarships to 417 recipients.
Over 150 student scholarship programs, offering more than 487 awards, are available to students attending Penn College. In addition, Penn College students may search a variety of external scholarships.
Do you think only students with the highest grades earn college scholarships? Think again!
Many scholarships are awarded to students with average grades. Certain scholarships are restricted, for example, to students enrolled in a particular program or graduates from a specific high school. Others are less restrictive. The key is to check eligibility requirements thoroughly prior to applying for a scholarship.
Students should review available scholarships each semester. New scholarships are added frequently. Also, student eligibility may vary from semester to semester. Regular review is the best way to know exactly what opportunities are available.
