Introduction to Scholarships

You can be considered for three sources of scholarships at Penn State York. As a Penn State student, you will be considered for any and all scholarships offered through the entire University system. As a York student, you will be considered for those resources specific to students attending the York campus. In addition, you can apply for private resources through an "outside resource" scholarship book that we provide.

To apply, you need to have accepted your offer to Penn State York and have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at the time of awarding.
