World Campus Scholarships

Penn State World Campus scholarships provide financial support to undergraduate students. There are multiple scholarships available, and submitting this application allows you to be considered for all of those for which you are qualified. These scholarships are for first-time and returning students, adult learners, military students, international students, and other students who are enrolled full-time or part-time (at least 6 credits per semester).

The deadline to apply for scholarships for the 2024–2025 academic has passed.

Please note: Although students must have a FAFSA on file to receive a scholarship, they can submit a scholarship application even if their FAFSA has not yet been processed or submitted.


Recipients of World Campus scholarships must be students who:

  • are currently enrolled in a World Campus undergraduate degree program
  • have a FAFSA on file with the Office of Student Aid (for United States citizens and eligible non-citizens; international students may apply without a FAFSA on file). We recommend students submit their 2024–25 FAFSA by May 15, 2024.

For more information about the 2024–25 FAFSA, which has changed from previous years, please visit the Office of Student Aid website.

Penn State employees receiving the educational benefit are not eligible to receive World Campus scholarships.

The application is now closed. Applications are typically accepted beginning in October for scholarships for the following spring semester.
