Student Support

Student Support

Prospective PennDesign students choose between the top graduate programs in the world. With fellowships, travel grants and research assistantships we can make their decision an easy one.

Our students are talented and driven. They want more out of their education than career readiness. They challenge us to demonstrate how we’re making a difference, and to guide them toward a future where they can follow a career in the service of impact, not
 student loans.
