It’s time to transform tomorrow. And the Howley Foundation Scholarship has your back. If you graduate from an approved school in the Philadelphia region and meet the academic requirements, you’ll be eligible for this generous $10,000 scholarship. 

On top of that, Howley Scholars will receive a $1,000 Penn College Foundation award and up to $18,870 in additional need-based financial aid. But the benefits don’t end there. Become a Howley Scholar and you’ll be supported by dedicated advisers, tutoring services, and mentorship opportunities. We’ll also guarantee you on-campus employment if you want it and freeze your tuition and housing and board fees, which means you’ll lock in first-year costs for the length of your education.

"I get a little antsy. Sitting in a classroom all day is not my cup of tea. I like to actually go out and do it to learn about it.

I think Penn College is a wonderful fit for me."
