By educating the most gifted students regardless of their financial means, we hold true to our University’s founding ideals while fortifying the foundation of our democracy. With your support, we have the opportunity to do even more.
A Named Scholarship established today creates an endowment that will fund life-changing opportunities for future generations of Penn students on campus and beyond. Through The Power of Penn Campaign, we will expand the endowment for undergraduate financial aid, so a larger portion of the program can be sustained by a permanent source of funding.
We will also ensure that first-generation and low-income students thrive at Penn and get the most out of their college experience. Penn First Plus, an interrelated set of initiatives and resources, is a vital next step in our commitment to increasing access—and a philanthropy priority for The Power of Penn Campaign.
Gifts to support endowed scholarships and Penn First Plus are investments that will reap dividends for our students, our donors, our campus, and our world for generations to come. Please join the community of Penn scholarship donors in writing the next chapter of our legacy of access and inclusion.
I never could have imagined attending a school like Penn growing up, and I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for my scholarship.
