Scholarship Criteria

Applicants offered admission for fall to a campus-based graduate degree program will be automatically considered for the Chancellor's Scholarship. Awards are competitive, requiring excellent academic performance in undergraduate and/or previous graduate work and future academic promise, as based on information submitted in support of an applicant’s admission application (including undergraduate and graduate transcripts, previous work experience, and standardized test scores, if applicable). Applicants must be planning to enroll in a graduate degree program offered at Penn State Great Valley on a resident instruction basis.

Terms of the Award

The Chancellor's Scholarship will be in the amount of $10,000 or $15,000. Funds will be applied to tuition and fees for one academic year. 

Scholarship recipients must enroll in 12 credits in each of their first and second semesters in order to receive and maintain this scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded over two semesters; disbursement of the award in the second semester will be conditional on the student maintaining at least a cumulative grade point average of 3.25/4.0 and completing a course load of 12 credits in each semester of the award.

To Receive Consideration

The Chancellor’s Scholarship is offered only at the time of a selected student’s formal offer of admission to a graduate degree program. It is designed to support newly-enrolling, first-time students. It does not require submission of the Campus Scholarship Application or a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The deadline to apply for admission and receive consideration for this scholarship is April 30. Early application is encouraged.

Applicants will automatically be considered for this award if they indicate on the admissions application that they plan to enroll on a full-time basis. Note that 12 credits must be completed in each of your first and second semesters to receive and maintain this scholarship.
