Support Fels

Now is the time for Fels.

We currently provide scholarships to 70% of our incoming students and provide support to many students pursuing unpaid internships through the PLAS Fellowship program.

Your gift to the Fels Annual Fund will enable us to strengthen the student experience through programming, internships and professional development. 

With your gift to the Sweeney Scholarship Fund or Spady Fellowship Fund100% of your contribution will provide much-needed financial support so that our students can make career decisions based on the impact that they can have, and not the salary they can earn.

You can donate in any of the following ways:

  • By mail: send a check made payable to the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania to the Fels Institute of Government, attn: External Affairs, 3814 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
  • By phone: contact Fels External Affairs at 1.215.746.6448.

  • By credit card: visit the secure website to designate your contribution to the Annual Fund, Sweeney Scholarship Fund or Spady Fellowship Fund (use the search function in the upper right hand corner of the site to find the fund) to ensure that Fels is the recipient of your gift.  Remember that if you choose the Sweeney or Spady Funds 100% of your gift will go to support Fels students.
