ALTOONA, Pa. — For students who need to take at least one summer course in order to graduate on time but who are facing financial challenges to doing so, the Summer Success Scholarship can help.

Students run into various academic and personal challenges while in college. Sometimes these challenges lead them to get behind in their degree program, which could extend their time to graduation.

Summer is an ideal time for students to get caught up, yet cost may present a barrier. Recognizing this challenge, Penn State is offering the Summer Success Scholarship to help students to pursue summer study.

Students at all Penn State campuses are eligible to apply. For a description of the scholarship criteria and the link to apply, visit the Summer Success Scholarship site. The deadline to apply is Friday, April 22.
