Governor Wolf Launches Tour to Make College More Affordable

Governor Tom Wolf visited Lock Haven University to launch a tour of the 14 state-owned universities and discuss his proposal to help thousands of low- and middle-class students afford their dream of a college education.

The governor is proposing the Nellie Bly Scholarship Program, a historic $204 million need-based scholarship that will close the gap after a student’s Pell Grant and other state grants to enroll in a Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) university.

"The Nellie Bly Scholarship Program fills the gap after other aid programs so thousands of students can afford a college degree without crushing debt," said Governor Wolf. "This scholarship would help students get a college degree and spend less time paying off student loans and more time building a career in Pennsylvania."
