Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

Scholar in a research lab
71.33% Funded







Each year, our Scholars perform impressive, high-quality research that is a strong representation of the educational experience obtained through the Schreyer Honors College. This research is often the main component that leads our Scholars to their career, having their research published, and graduate school success. In making the most of their education, some Scholars need additional financial support to meet their academic goals.

The support our alumni, parents, and friends have for the college is unmatched. Last year, 32 Scholars were able to receive funding that enabled them to complete their research.

The most common costs for Scholars in need of research funds:

  • $100

    Covers conference travel

  • $300

    Covers materials and supplies to conduct research

  • $1100

    Covers a summer stipend for living expenses

With this need in mind, we hope to help as many Scholars as possible who are in need of financial support to complete their research projects. A gift of any size can help our Scholars reach their goals.

Last year, student projects included:

  • Anger stereotypes of Asian American women and men in the workplace: An intersectional perspective
  • An Analysis of the Dynamic Response of Suspension Footbridges Measured Against Human Comfort Criteria
  • After the Fire: Examining the Reemergence of the Business District in Early 20th Century Baltimore and San Francisco
  • Virulence factors and determinants in Bordetella infections
  • Research on the fabrication of graphene monolayers via chemical vapor deposition at the University of Padua in Italy
  • Life and times of composer Hans Gal; travel to Germany and Austria

Can't wait to hear more? Listen to Xavier, Jackie and Brian's research stories to hear about the difference your gift can make:

But don't stop there. Give back today to make more projects possible this summer.

"I wouldn't have been able to have an unforgettable experience, both traveling abroad but also conducting research in a foreign laboratory."
