Men & Women of Pennsylvania

Donors who make gifts of $2 million to graduate or undergraduate student aid within a five year period are recognized as Men and Women of Pennsylvania.

Inspired and named by University Trustee Emeritus George Weiss, W’65, HON’14, the Men and Women of Pennsylvania initiative recognizes donors who make exceptionally generous investments in student aid at Penn.

As Weiss notes, “Those who support scholarship have very personal reasons for doing so, but it always seems to come back to one simple idea: the chance to make a difference in a young person’s life.”

 Penn proudly celebrates the following champions of financial aid who comprise the members of the Men and Women of Pennsylvania.
