Annual Scholarship Reception to be held at Mont Alto
On Friday, October 21, 2011, Penn State Mont Alto will host over 400 students, donors, and their guests for the annual scholarship reception. This program is coordinated by the Office of Development and Giving at Penn State Mont Alto to bring together students who have received scholarships at Penn State Mont Alto and the donors who have given generously to the campus to support these academically outstanding students.
Annually, Penn State Mont Alto awards approximately $350,000 in scholarships to students based upon merit and financial need. These funds have provided assistance to more than 250 students at Mont Alto in the 2011/12 academic year.
In an ongoing effort to assist students with the rising costs of higher education, Penn State has been seeking monetary gifts as part of the "For the Future" fundraising campaign - announced publicly in 2010. At its heart, this is a campaign for Penn State students—to enable the next generation and all succeeding generations of graduates to realize their full potential as individuals—to sustain their families, advance their professions, and contribute to our country’s strength. Monies raised as part of the "For the Future" campaign will directly support scholarships, capital projects, student research, and the out of class experience at Penn State Mont Alto.

Penn State Mont Alto has approximately 1200 students. The campus offers seven baccalaureate and eight associate degree programs, as well as the first two years of more than 160 Penn State degrees.
