Eligible students must be offered admission as first-year, full-time students at any Penn State campus or at the Pennsylvania College of Technology; must have demonstrated leadership and humanitarian qualities through extracurricular activities; and must have achieved or show promise of achieving academic success. This grant-in-aid, awarded to one first- year student, will be applied to room and board charges for two years, provided the student continues to meet all eligibility requirements.

To apply, eligible students must submit a letter of application that includes three parts: the student's name and PSU ID or Penn College ID; the Penn State or Penn College staff employee's name and position; and a personal essay of no more than two typewritten pages that illustrates the student's leadership, humanitarian and academic merits.
