Due to the generosity of alumni and friends of Penn State Wilkes-Barre, we award over 160 scholarships to our students. Approximately 70% of these young men and women are the first generation to attend college, and 75% of whom receive some sort of financial aid.

A unique opportunity: consider purchasing a brick on the Hayfield Pathway and help pave the way for deserving students to attend Penn State Wilkes-Barre! As part of the Hayfield Pathway Endowed Scholarship, you can have a brick engraved with your own name, or leave a lasting tribute to a Penn State graduate, a friend, or relative.

For additional information on creating an endowed scholarship or award, please contact Karen Brace-Hodle, External Relations Assistant at (570) 675-9228 or via e-mail at
