Monarch Butterfly Scholarship

Championed by student leaders, the Monarch Butterfly Scholarship was established in 2017. The DePaul University Student Government Association (SGA) in collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Student Success (OMSS) presents a scholarship opportunity for returning FAFSA-ineligible, immigrant, undergraduate students. Student selections are based on financial need, academic performance, extracurricular activities, and community service.

Monetary Award Program (MAP)

The Retention of Illinois Students and Equity (RISE) Act allows eligible undocumented students and transgender students who are disqualified from federal financial aid to apply to all forms of state financial aid, including MAP grants.

The DREAM.US National Scholarship

This national scholarship is intended for highly motivated DREAMers with significant, unmet financial need. While GPA and test scores are considered, the national scholarship places great emphasis on students' demonstrated commitment to community service and their ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that DREAMers face each day.
