The Keystone Rewards Scholarship is a benefit provided to Pennsylvania residents at no cost to the student or their family.

Students who register for the scholarship will receive 500 points and $500 off full tuition at participating schools.
Pennsylvania State Representative John Taylor (R-Philadelphia) has acknowledged the enormous burden college tuition puts on Pennsylvania students and families. “College tuition places an enormous burden on Pennsylvania families – the Keystone Rewards Scholarships are designed to assist in alleviating that burden and helping create a brighter future for our students. The Keystone Rewards Scholarship program is building a stronger Pennsylvania – one child at a time,” says Taylor.
