Penn State Berks is pleased to announce a new scholarship program intended to help adult students get started toward earning a Penn State degree.

The Adult Learner 25+ Program will provide eligible adults who are enrolling as first-time students at Penn State with a $2,000 lifetime award toward the cost of their education.

β€œIn these challenging economic times, Penn State Berks wants to do all it can to help make a Penn State education affordable and accessible for adult students,” said Penn State Berks Chancellor R. Keith Hillkirk.

Students must be at least 25 old and must be working toward an undergraduate degree. They must be continuously enrolled to maintain the scholarship. In addition, a completed Penn State admissions application and a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application must be on file with the college.

There are some restrictions. The $2,000 lifetime award is only for new Penn State students. Awards are not available to Penn State employees or their dependents. The maximum lifetime award is limited to $500 for students receiving 100 percent tuition reimbursement from their employer or military benefits.

Students will receive the award in increments by semester credits: 3 credits = $125, 6 credits = $250, 9 credits = $375, and 12 credits = $500.

For more information on the Adult Learner 25+ Program, contact Solange Israel-Mintz, adult student recruitment coordinator, 610-396-6222.
