Applications for COE Scholarships in the 2010–11 Academic Year can be Filed Beginning Sunday, November 1, 2009


ALL undergraduate and graduate students who will be enrolled in the College of Education at the University Park campus for 2010–11 are eligible to apply for COE scholarships.

The new online application form, instructions, a list of available scholarships, and an FAQ are available at www.ed.psu.edu. (Select For Current Students, then choose Scholarships and Financial Aid.)


There are many different types of scholarships available, including scholarships if...

  • You are involved in a musical performance group at Penn State;
  • Your hometown is in Allegheny, Berks, Bucks, Clearfield, Elk, Greene, Lehigh, Luzerne, Northampton, Washington, or York Counties;
  • You are planning to study abroad during the 2010–11 academic year;
  • You graduated from Reading, Monessen, Belle Vernon, Charleroi, Elizabeth Township, McKeesport, Ringgold, State College Area, Shaler Area, Steel Valley, West Branch Area, or West Greene high school;
  • You are a returning adult, non-traditional student;
  • You will be student teaching during the 2010–11 academic year.

Nearly all scholarships require that you establish and document your financial need. In order to do so, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in accordance with instructions from the Office of Student Aid. We strongly recommend that you file this financial statement by March 1, 2010. The University's Office of Student Aid provides the College with the financial need documentation you establish by filing FAFSA. This is the only official means by which we can validate your financial need.

Students must complete this application to be considered for scholarship support, even if you applied for scholarships last year.

The submission deadline is no later than 11:59 p.m. on March 1, 2010. Any questions should be directed to education@psu.edu.
