  • Student Support Award: Designed to help students with extraordinary or unexpected needs, the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications Student Support Award can help students who -- through no fault of their own -- face personal or financial curcumstances, such as a family member's job loss, illness or death that could prohibit them from completing their degree requirements at Penn State. This fund exists exclusively to help students with that type of one-time need.
