Penn State has extended the remote-delivery period for all classes through at least the spring semester, based on evolving federal and state guidance around the growing coronavirus pandemic. Penn State development and alumni association staff will not be traveling through April 20, and the postponement or cancelation of fundraising, volunteer, and recognition events will be evaluated on an ongoing basis.

We Are Giving
As Penn State navigates the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus (COVID-19), many community members have asked what they can do to support students adversely impacted by precautions. Gifts to the Student Care & Advocacy Emergency Fund will help Penn Staters at all campus locations who are unable to afford housing, transportation, basic needs, resources for online learning, and more.
Giving to Penn State changes lives
“It can be challenging as a minority student to enter the STEM fields, where you don’t often meet people who share your background or look like you.” –Ana De La Fuente Duran
Thanks to the Millennium Scholars Program and the support of Eberly College of Science alumnus Steve Mahle and his wife, Kathi Austin Mahle, Duran and other talented students from underrepresented communities are finding each other and a path to the future at Penn State.
