Scholarships for Continuing Park Students

Scholarships & Grants

2020-21 Park Endowed Scholarships Awards:

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, we offer more than 30 scholarships for current Park students each year.  They are given on an annual basis, and most of them require proof of financial need through the FAFSA form.  Applications for the 2020-2021 Park Endowed Scholarships will be available February 7, 2020.  CLICK HERE to view the criteria for each scholarship and to apply.

The application deadline is Monday, March 23, 2020 at NOON EDT.

If you have technical difficulty with any of the applications, contact Kristin Morse (Academic Services Coordinator). For all other questions, contact Rob Gearhart, Associate Dean, at 274-1021.

Note that the priority deadline for filing for financial aid (the FAFSA) is March 1st. If you do not file by the priority deadline, you may not be considered as a primary candidate for some scholarships.

Other Scholarships:

Applications for the James B. Pendleton Scholarships for students in film, screenwriting, and photography are announced each spring in Park e-news.
