Scholarships are a form of gift aid and do not need to be repaid. When you are accepted to Point Park, you automatically are considered for these awards. Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis (one-half in fall, one-half in spring). We invite you to explore our many Point Park scholarships, listed below, and their awarding criteria.

The scholarships listed on this page are for students who will enter Point Park for the 2019-20 academic year (fall 2019 or spring 2020). If you are starting Point Park in spring 2019, please visit our Scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year page. Students in the Online program are not eligible for scholarships or grants from the university. Participating in Study Abroad may affect your scholarship.

Students who opt for test optional admission will be evaluated and eligible for all appropriate scholarships.

In addition to offering institutional scholarships, we encourage students to seek out private scholarships - from organizations, businesses and other special-interest groups. At Point Park, you will never have your merit-based aid reduced if you receive outside scholarships.
