PSU's Graduate School of Education awards 51 scholarships for the 2014-15 year

Support for GSE scholarships grows
Philanthropic support for the GSE totaled over $2.5 million in fiscal year 2013-14 (which ended June 30, 2014), of which $2.2 million was committed to student support. This compares to the previous year’s total giving of $534,000, with $449,700 for scholarships. In 2012-13, 46 scholarships, totaling about $105,000, were awarded to students.
