Penn GSE merit scholarships provide partial tuition support to full-time students in their first year of study at the master’s level. The School seeks to provide assistance to as many eligible candidates as possible, currently awarding scholarships to approximately 75% of incoming master’s students. These Penn GSE scholarships are awarded to both domestic and international students, and there is no application to be considered for these.
All scholarships are based on merit as shown by the strength of your application. The awards are made at the time of application review by the academic divisions and are based on the academic merit of the application for admission. Awards are communicated at the time of admission in the acceptance letter. Scholarships are not taxable and require no service components. Scholarships are disbursed evenly in the fall and spring semesters only.
