Support the Bellisario Media Center Equipment Fund
Alumni and friends who support the Bellisario Media Center Equipment Fund with gifts of $250 or more will have an ongoing presence on the center's digital donor wall — consistently reminding students they are part of a community invested in their future.

- Student Support Award: Designed to help students with extraordinary or unexpected needs, the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications Student Support Award can help students who -- through no fault of their own -- face personal or financial curcumstances, such as a family member's job loss, illness or death that could prohibit them from completing their degree requirements at Penn State. This fund exists exclusively to help students with that type of one-time need.
