Undergraduate Scholarships

Bunton-Waller Undergraduate Scholarship Program

*This scholarship is only offered to incoming first year students.*

Named in honor of Mildred S. Bunton and Calvin H. Waller, the first-recorded African American alumna and alumnus of Penn State, the Bunton-Waller Undergraduate Scholarship Program is a merit-based award given to students who bring diverse perspectives, identities, and interests to Penn State. The Bunton-Waller program attracts students who contribute to the diversity of the student body and demonstrate strong academic and professional potential. In addition to the merit-based awards, Bunton-Waller recipients are part of the Penn State Educational Equity Scholars Program community, and participate in a living and learning community in their first year.

To be considered for scholarships within the Eberly College of Science including Bunton-Waller, high school seniors should complete the Science Scholarship application. The deadline to submit your Science Scholarship Application to be considered for scholarships has closed. You must submit your application to Penn State before you are eligible to apply for scholarships within Eberly.

Decisions for scholarships requiring FAFSA information may be delayed. Please visit to learn more.
