By the Numbers

Penn is the largest university in the United States with a grant-based financial aid program. As the demand for undergraduate financial aid has grown steadily over recent decades, so too has Penn’s commitment to increasing access for students with financial need.

Since 2008, we have increased our financial aid budget by more than 150%
The average financial aid package totals $64,270 which is more than double the 2001 average.
45% 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
