Scholarship Program

The Lancaster County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association awards seven scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors from Lancaster County who enroll at a Penn State campus for each fall semester.

The Chapter will grant two $2,000 scholarships to female students and two $2,000 to male students. The selection of these four scholarships is based strictly on scholarship, activities and personal qualities. To be eligible, you must be in the top half of your graduating class and have a minimum 1000 SAT score (the minimum academic requirements). Class ranking and SAT scores are important criteria. Extracurricular activities and supplemental letters written by the applicants also are significant evaluation factors.

The Chapter is also granting two $2,000 & one $1,000 scholarships based on financial need. Students who meet the academic requirements and also have a financial need should submit a document explaining their need for financial assistance. In addition, the student must submit a copy of their parents' latest complete Federal Income Tax Return. This information will be held strictly confidential and will only be seen by the scholarship committee.

Application forms are only available on this website. The applications have portions that must be completed by both the applicant and their school. It is essential that you provide your class rank, grade point average and SAT scores.

Completed applications must be received no later than Friday, April 14, 2017 and should be mailed to:

Anthony Burkholder
628 Warminster Lane
Lititz, PA 17543

If you have any questions, please contact our Scholarship Committee Chairman, Anthony Burkholder.
