To recognize the accomplishments of our students, the College of Health and Human Development awards scholarships on the basis of academic achievement, financial need, school/community activities, leadership positions, and work experience. Students must be enrolled in the College of Health and Human Development. Some scholarships and awards require enrollment in a specific major.

No Application Required for Most Scholarships

All currently enrolled HHD students, currently enrolled Penn State students, incoming freshmen and students transferring from a college outside of the Penn State system will be automatically considered for all scholarships and awards for which they are eligible.

A small number of scholarships/awards require an application. Students who are determined to be eligible for such scholarships and awards will be contacted and encouraged to apply. For questions or additional information please contact Douglas Ford (814-863-6790,
