Scholarship Opportunity for Adult Learners (DePaul)

The DePaul Office of Adult Student Affairs is pleased to announce their Scholarship Program for the 2011-2012 academic year.  This program is designed to assist the growing number of adult learners who are returning to schoolTwo students (one undergraduate and one graduate/professional student) will be chosen from the applicant pool each term, including summer.  Each regular year academic term recipient will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship and the summer term recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship.  These awards are not renewable and winners of the scholarships cannot apply for another Adult Student Affairs Scholarship in the same academic year. 

Fall Quarter = 2 students – $2,000 each                     Winter Quarter = 2 students – $2,000 each

Spring Quarter = 2 students – $2,000 each              Summer Quarter = 2 students – $1,000 each


Students who have applied, but have not received a scholarship may apply again within the same academic year.

Winners of the scholarship have the option of having the funds applied to their tuition or towards a DePaul University sponsored Study Abroad trip for the quarter in which they are awarded the scholarship.  Winners must be enrolled at least half time or registered for the study abroad trip in the term for the quarter in which they are awarded the scholarship.  Current financial aid packages may be adjusted when the scholarships are applied.
