DePaul awards more than $26 million in scholarships each year, as well as other funds to support or award academic or career success. These financial awards are gift aid — students do not have to repay them or earn them by working. They are awarded for academic excellence, strong leadership, service to the community and artistic talent. Student Affairs administers a number of financial awards at DePaul University.
