Endowments and Scholarships


Scholarship Opportunities

There are three types of scholarship opportunities: Endowed, Annual and General Gift.

  • Endowed - permanent fund established by a donor to help students. It provides tax benefits to the benefactor.
  • Annual - pledge of $2,500 a year for five years.
  • General Gift - can be given to any already existing scholarship, award or endowment.


Benefits of Endowment

Endowed gifts are held by the University in perpetuity. The initial gift is invested and only a portion of the average annual investment return is spent. The remaining income is added to the principal as protection against inflation. Thanks to the generosity of friends and alumni, Penn State New Kensington has 50 endowments, including 14 trustee scholarships.

Contact the director of development to discuss the many options available to donors who wish to support Penn State New Kensington. Tina Sluss will assist you in creating a gift that meets your personal interests and matches the needs of the University. Call Kary Coleman, Director of Development, 724-334-6057.
