“A Named Scholarship made it possible for me to be the first in my family to go to college, study with world-class professors, and be part of the amazing Penn community.”

Undergraduate Financial Aid By the Numbers

Since 2008, we have increased our financial aid budget by more than 150%
The average financial aid package totals $54,304 which is more than double the 2001 average.
46% of undergraduates receive direct grant support from Penn.

Penn remains committed to meeting the increasing needs of talented students for whom an Ivy-League education would not be possible without scholarship aid. See the impact of Named Scholarships
