Undergraduate Aid Program

Penn’s undergraduate grant-based financial aid program meets 100% of demonstrated financial need with grants and work-study funds.

Penn is the largest university with a program that enables eligible undergraduates to receive grant-based financial aid packages for eight semesters. The program applies to traditional, dependent undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Nursing, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the Wharton School, who are pursuing their first baccalaureate degree.
