Alumni Society Scholarship
In 2013, the Penn State Harrisburg Alumni Society Board of Directors created a scholarship for students at the campus. The scholarship is based on scholarship, leadership, and need.
Applications open in August and selections are made in mid-September each year. The recipients are selected by the awards committee of the Society.
Do you know an undergraduate or graduate student who has demonstrated potential for future achievement in a chosen field? Does this person meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Active in community affairs or professional organizations
- Active in campus activities
- Achieved academic distinction
- Worked his/her way through college
If you know an undergraduate or graduate student who meets these qualifications, they are eligible to be nominated for the Penn State Harrisburg Alumni Society Undergraduate or Graduate Student Award, both of which are presented annually at the Alumni Awards Reception in October.
Nominations may come from faculty, staff, other students, or be self-nominating. They are due by March 5th each spring.
Graduating Senior Award
The Penn State Harrisburg Alumni Society honors a graduating senior and a graduate student each April with the Graduating Senior and Graduate Student Awards.
Graduate Student Award
Nominators need only send a letter of recommendation. The student will be asked to complete the online form. Each nomination may include up to three letters of recommendation. No resumes will be accepted.
