Science Dean's Scholarship Program
The Science Dean's Scholarship program provides Eberly College of Science students with a scholarship and program activities that are designed to support, welcome, and address the needs of math and science students who change from one of Penn State's twenty-three campuses to University Park in their junior year.
Accepted students are matched with peer mentors, a transition adviser, and enjoy program activities that provide them with opportunities to learn more about University Park resources and career options.
The scholarships are in the amount of $4,000 per year at University Park, as long as the student continues to make progress toward a science or math degree at Penn State.
All students who are eligible to change location from another Penn State campus to University Park to complete a math or science degree in the Eberly College of Science may apply for this scholarship. Please see the college entrance to major and change-of-assignment requirements for more information.
Our college goal is to be inclusive: we encourage students of all backgrounds to apply for this scholarship.
