Scholarship celebration in New York City

For Donors

Our donors are the heart and soul of the Undergraduate Scholarship Program, touching generations of deserving students with their generosity.

A simple thank you seems inadequate—because donors’ endowed gifts are the foundation of Penn’s Named Scholarship Program. These individuals and organizations recognize the value—to scholarship recipients, their families, our University, and the world at large—of making a Penn education accessible and affordable to the most talented students. We could not be more grateful for this support, which upholds the very mission of our University and ensures that it will thrive in perpetuity.
