Exceptional students are the heart of our eminent University. By offering an unparalleled education to the most talented applicants, regardless of means, Penn catalyzes opportunity and transforms lives. Passionate and diverse, Penn students go on to perform groundbreaking research, create their own companies and serve communities in Philadelphia and across the globe.
It all starts with the pledge to make a Penn education accessible and affordable for every admitted student. This unflagging commitment to access is tearing down barriers with the largest grant-based financial aid program in the country. The Power of Penn Campaign will expand undergraduate financial aid, increase Penn’s investment in financial aid for international students and magnify resources for first-generation and low-income students. Gifts to support financial aid are crucial to helping Penn admit the most talented scholars and empower them to make a difference in the world.
