PATH Program Update
Because the Pennsylvania State Budget has not been passed, PHEAA is unable to confirm awards or disburse funds to schools and employers for the current 2015-16 Award Year. This affects all state and federal programs administered by PHEAA.
Through the PATH (Partnerships for Access to Higher Education) Program, qualifying students who have already been awarded a scholarship or grant by one of our PHEAA PATH Partners may be eligible for additional grant money.
To be considered for a PHEAA PATH grant, you must:
- Be nominated by a participating PATH Partner from which you received a scholarship (PDF) for the academic year
- Have received a Pennsylvania State Grant for the semester or quarter for which you have been nominated to receive a PATH grant
- Demonstrate financial need for a PATH grant (as determined by the postsecondary institution)
- Be enrolled as an undergraduate, at least half-time in a Pennsylvania State Grant–approved postsecondary institution in Pennsylvania and maintain satisfactory academic progress (as determined by the postsecondary institution)
The maximum PHEAA PATH grant will not exceed $2,500 within an academic year.
