Students with the ability and ambition to attend Penn State Abington will have this opportunity through scholarship support. A scholarship may be named in memory or honor of an individual. The benefactor may also provide preferences—such as academic merit, financial need, geographic area, or group of recipients.
An academic award recognizes academic excellence, and can be named for the donor, designated in a specific academic discipline, or made a general award. For example, an academic excellence award in Information Sciences and Technology can be established as an excellent incentive for students in that particular major.
Program endowments support activities as diverse as healthy youth development outreach, undergraduate research, and study abroad.
Naming opportunities are of the most visible and important legacies that can be established at Penn State Abington. Each gift reflects the donor’s highest ideals and ensures that those ideals remain an enduring yet dynamic part of Penn State Abington for generations to come. Through naming endowments, our most generous benefactors can:
- Recognize a program’s achievements and provide the resources necessary to build upon them.
- Give a program the stability and support it needs to become a force in the academic world.
- Challenge faculty and staff to unite across disciplines and fields to provide the best possible education for Penn State Abington students.
Penn State Abington Future Fund
Gifts received without any specific designation are used by the college where most needed through the Abington Future Fund. Expenditures are predominantly used for student emergency assistance, academic program support, campus renovation and other general expenses.
