The School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2) is proud to offer limited scholarships to prospective Master’s and DSW students. SP2 scholarships and fellowships are awarded by the SP2 Financial Aid office.
In order to be considered for scholarships, students must fully complete the financial aid supplement section of the online application for admission. If a student indicates on their application for admission that they will be requesting financial aid, their application will not be considered complete until this section is also fully completed. No separate scholarship application is required.
Scholarships are available to domestic and international students. Full-time and part-time applicants are eligible for scholarship consideration. Scholarships are awarded based on the faculty’s recommendation and financial need.
Please note Penn Staff are eligible for aid only through the University’s tuition benefit program through the Office of Human Resources. CSIS Accelerated Students are not eligible for scholarship aid.
Applying for financial aid will in no way affect a student’s eligibility for admission. You must complete the scholarship application at the time you are applying for admissions.
Notification of scholarships received is provided in applicants’ admissions decision letters. Students are permitted to appeal their scholarship decisions.
Scholarship aid reevaluation requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any competing offers please include those in your email. When your reevaluation is complete the results will be emailed to you. Please note this process can take a minimum of two weeks.
Access to financial resources can greatly impact the decision-making process of which graduate school to attend for many prospective students. If you are interested in securing aid outside of what SP2 can offer, you may want to conduct a private scholarship search. When searching for private scholarships, you should consider checking with local civic groups, employers, or visit these websites:
