PA Foundation Scholarships

The PASSHE Foundation

Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education Foundation works to secure and disburse private philanthropic funds that enhance and support the goals of the Board of Governors and Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education. Its work benefits every State System university.

Fundraising and relationship-building efforts are focused on prospects and donors who are passionate about education, express a clear desire to support system-wide efforts, and share a similar geographical (statewide) footprint.

Thanks to our generous donors, the State System Foundation plans to award nearly $400,000 in scholarships and awards to students attending one of the 14 State System universities during the 2018-2019 academic year. Your SECA campaign gift would help!

The State System Foundation, along with the seven universities that are charities under the umbrella, work to engage donors who are seeking to invest in students, programs, and other priority needs. Additional State System university foundations may be added in the future. Please support State System universities by making a gift to one of our participating charities.
