Cheyney Foundation - Scholarships Available
At Cheyney, we believe that every student should have the opportunity to pursue their passion. That’s why we offer an array of scholarships for students with financial need and those with exceptional academic, athletic or artistic talent. In addition to the scholarships offered by Cheyney University, the Cheyney Foundation offers scholarships for graduating seniors in need of financial assistance, and scholarships for out of state non-PA residents.

PECO S.T.E.M Scholarship Award recipients
Eight students at Cheyney University are one step closer to reaching their goals of becoming advocates, change agents and innovators in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (S.T.E.M.). Each student was awarded $2,500 scholarships to alleviate financial barriers that could otherwise derail and distract them from reaching their goals. This scholarship was made possible by PECO, a longtime supporter of Cheyney University and the Cheyney Foundation. With aspirations ranging from developing urban aquaculture centers and farms in poor communities to providing education on reproductive processes for poor women of color and everything in between, these students have created a union between their passion for science and their interest in engaging their communities.
