Since 1927, gifts to The Penn Fund—from undergraduate alumni and parents like you—have made a profound and immediate impact on all aspects of student life and learning at the University by providing grant-based financial aid packages to undergraduates, supporting enhancements to academic programs and campus technology, and fostering community through student clubs and organizations. This longstanding tradition of loyal generosity allows donors to support the University’s greatest needs and highest priorities through the general fund, long-term scholarship support, and special reunion class projects.

Class of 2021 265th Commencement

The University of Pennsylvania will hold one limited in-person undergraduate Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2021 at Franklin Field on the morning of Monday, May 17, 2021. This plan is contingent upon there being no major interim change for the worse in the course of the pandemic. Due to public health limitations, we regret that we will not be able to welcome the entire Penn community to this year’s celebration.

We regret that family or friends will not be able to be accommodated at Franklin Field, but we invite you to watch a live webcast accessible below.
