Commonwealth Scholars Grant

Applicants for the class entering in August 2019 are eligible to participate in Penn State Dickinson Law's Commonwealth Scholars Tuition Grant Program. Here’s how it works:

  • All Pennsylvania residents admitted to Penn State's Dickinson Law before April 15 will automatically receive a free $20,000 tuition grant, renewed each year for a total tuition savings of $60,000. Eligible applicants admitted after April 15 will receive the Commonwealth Scholars Grant as funds remain available.
  • The grant will be applied toward J.D. tuition at Penn State's Dickinson Law only. 
  • Consistent with President Eric Barron’s commitment to making higher education more affordable and accessible, we have waived our application fee.
  • All Pennsylvania residents who apply will be considered for additional scholarship aid based on other performance criteria as well as need.
