Pennsylvania Commonwealth Scholarship
This scholarship provides recognition and financial incentive to undergraduate and graduate students from Penn State who are enrolled or planning to enroll in officially recognized short-term, faculty-led international programs. These programs are embedded as an add-on or supplement to a semester-length residential course, for which participating students earn credit. Programs usually last from a few days up to a number of weeks. All such programs must involve at least one Penn State faculty leader.
