The Punxsutawney Endowed Scholarship is open to any full-time IUP Punxsutawney student in good academic and judicial standing. All are encouraged to apply. At least five scholarships of at least $1,000 each will be awarded. 

Recipients of the award will be recognized with a portrait and listing of featured activities in the Gallery of Student Success in the Learning Center.

Students are required to submit a 500- to 1,000-word essay in response to the following:

"You are now engaged in lifelong learning. If you were being interviewed by a potential employer and they asked, what skills have you learned so far, how would you respond? This may include technical skills, or possibly critical/logical thinking abilities, or even changes in perspectives on life, work, etc. How are you different and hopefully better now than before starting at IUP?" 

Students are also required to submit information regarding community service activities, certificates or trainings completed, leadership involvement, work experience, and hobbies.

The deadline to submit an application is Friday, March 31.
