PATH Program Update
The Pennsylvania General Assembly appropriates funds to PHEAA for the Pennsylvania State Grant and other programs. PHEAA has reviewed the actions of the General Assembly and the Governor. We are working to confirm awards and/or disburse funds for the current 2015-16 Academic Year as quickly as possible. Please note that 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.
