The Celebrating Penn’s Named Scholarship Program virtual event was held for Penn’s supporters of undergraduate financial aid. The evening featured remarks from President Amy Gutmann. True to the tradition of these Celebrations, the highlight of the evening was two seniors—Sophia, C’21 and Anannya, W’21— who shared stories of their own personal journeys to Penn, all that they’ve been able to achieve while here, and how the power of undergraduate financial aid made it all possible. In addition to remarks from Dr. Gutmann and these seniors, the virtual event featured videos of other Named Scholarship students, showcasing the diversity and talent of our undergraduates as they spoke about the impact that Penn, and financial aid, has had on them and the trajectory of their lives.
