Philanthropy continues to be a driving force behind Penn State Harrisburg’s growth and success. Private support has enabled the college to expand access to a world-class education through scholarships, develop innovative academic programming, build state-of-the art learning and research facilities, enhance honors education, immerse students in international study tours, and create a vibrant campus environment that reinforces and complements the classroom experience.

The new Open Doors Scholarship Program will allow donors to triple the impact of their support for five pilot initiatives designed to help Penn State students earn their degrees, reduce their educational debt, and hit the ground running in their lives and careers.
