Paying college tuition fees and other expenses is hard for some students. As a help for such students, various private and state organizations offer scholarships for students who are majoring in different fields and for students who wish to pursue higher education. The scholarships are open to the residents of the state of Pennsylvania as well as students who are enrolled in accredited colleges and universities in and around the state. As the home to the first university in America, the University of Pennsylvania, the state supports and encourages students with higher education dreams. By providing them the scholarships, the students are given the opportunity to complete their education and pursue a career in a field of interest.
