Scholarships are funds that do not need to be repaid.

Scholarships are credited directly to your university account during each quarter for which you have been awarded funds​. They are first applied against any amounts you owe the university.

The generosity of our donors allows DePaul to provide numerous scholarships to students who exhibit academic merit, financial need, strong leadership and service to their communities. We value the commitment of these donors to DePaul and our students. We invite you to view a list of scholarships​ made possible by our benefactors.

Internal scholarships are scholarships that are offered by DePaul. External scholarships are those that are offered by organizations and foundations outside of DePaul. You can also locate external scholarships through an Internet search. Our Resources page​ can assist you with your search.

Below is a list of the many types of scholarships, which vary depending on your student type.
