The Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity facilitates the awarding of approximately eighty annual scholarships through a central application process. The Educational Equity Scholarships include support for students with disabilities, students with veteran status or military dependents, and students who further the inclusion, diversity, and equity initiatives of the University. 

All incoming and current Penn State students are encouraged and welcome to apply, including students enrolled in graduate and undergraduate programs across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and in World Campus. Students must complete the application to be eligible for consideration, including short essay questions. Educational Equity provides one application for all scholarships. Students will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible, and students must submit an application each year for consideration. Renewal is possible but not assured. 

The application process for scholarships awarded for the 2021-2022 academic year is now closed. The application for the 2022-2023 academic year will open in February of 2022.
