Penn is committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of every undergraduate student.

How do you demonstrate need?

Penn Nursing students at HUP, 2006

Start by filling out your FAFSA and CSS Profile.

When you apply for financial aid at Penn, you’ll also fill out the Penn Financial Aid application. With all of this information the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) determines each family’s ability to pay the costs of a Penn education. Once a family’s financial need has been determined, Penn meets 100% of the demonstrated need of each family throughout their student’s undergraduate years with various types of financial assistance.

The Office of Financial Aid at Penn Nursing can provide additional support to you throughout this process.

Scholarships and Grants

We offer a number of scholarships and grants specific to the School of Nursing. You’ll find information on the awards available to our BSN students, including scholarships and loan forgiveness programs.
