Bread Upon the Waters Scholarship

Direct tuition grants are available to women over 30 years of age who intend to pursue their undergraduate degree in the liberal arts through the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, including Penn LPS Online, on a part-time basis. Funds for these scholarships are provided by donations from many private sources, and from former College of Liberal and Professional Studies students who want to help others benefit from the programs.

Bread Scholars are selected on the basis of academic excellence and financial need. Recipients are awarded two College of Liberal and Professional Studies courses in the fall and spring terms and two LPS 12-week courses in the summer, up to the minimum 32–36 course units required to graduate in the chosen major.
