Student Leader Scholarships

Student Leaders Scholarships provides financial assistance to students who have contributed to the activity and impact their student organization has made on the Penn State University Park campus through their leadership. Decisions will be based on students’ contributions to their organizations, students’ contributions to the greater campus community, and financial need.

Any member of a recognized or affiliate student organization who contributes to the organization through either a leadership role or by active membership is eligible to apply for a student leader scholarship. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The number of scholarships awarded and the amount of each shall be determined by the Student Leader Scholarship Selection Committee in coordination with the Office of Student Activities based on available funds. Decisions will be made by the end of the fall semester.

Deadline for both the Application and Letter of Recommendation is November 1, 2020 at midnight.


The Letter of Recommendation can either be submitted directly through the application by the student or separately through the OrgCentral Form linked below. Hard copy or emailed Letters of Recommendation will not be accepted.
