Penn State is a public university that receives some funding from the government and from taxpayers. There is, at this time, essentially no financial aid available for international undergraduate students. U.S. Citizenship or legal permanent residency is a requirement for federal funds; Pennsylvania residency is a further requirement for state funds.
Japan Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship
This is a small grant to students from Japan who are currently enrolled full time at Penn State and will be enrolled next semester full time. If there are no students from Japan, then the scholarship may be awarded to students whose ethnic, cultural and/or national background contribute to the diversity of the student body. Consideration for this award should be to students in fields related to Japanese language, culture, and technology who have achieved academic success.
