All school based financial aid is determined by several factors including information provided in your application, financial need and merit criteria.

Graduate & DNP Financial Aid

Your first step in applying for Federal Financial aid or alternative loans, is to submit a FAFSA. This will show your eligibility for federal loans (for both full- and part-time tracks).

All full-time students may also be eligible to receive an endowed scholarship or Penn Nursing grant. Our Scholarships and Grants section outlines scholarship and loan forgiveness programs, as well as partnerships and external scholarship opportunities.

We suggest reviewing the resources in the Graduate Student section of the Student Financial Services site as well as looking at our Understanding Your Aid section below for answers to common concerns.


Scholarships and Grants

Eligibility for Penn Nursing grants and endowed scholarships is determined based on merit and need as determined through your admissions application and FAFSA documentation.
