PSU Scholarships

Annual and Endowed Scholarships

Annual and endowed scholarships are made possible through the generous support of PSU alumni and friends who have chosen to honor a family member, classmate, mentor, friend, or faculty member by helping deserving students pay for their college education.

PSU scholarship applications generally become available in March for awards for the following year. For more information on scholarships available and their criteria, requirements, and deadlines, please visit the Academic Works website. If additional information is needed, please contact the specific department offering the scholarship for more information. Scholarships that do not require an application are awarded by the Financial Aid Office based on the scholarship criteria and greatest need. For questions regarding scholarships with general criteria, contact the Financial Aid office.

Scholarship Thank You Letters
Scholarship donors are generous and caring people who unselfishly give to support the educational endeavors of students like you. They ask for nothing in return. Receiving a well-written thank you letter from the student who received their scholarship is always special and lets the donor know how much you appreciate their support. Your letter reminds them why they gave in the first place and often helps secure continuing gifts for future students.
