The School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) has limited and highly competitive scholarship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. To be considered for an SCPS scholarship, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the current academic year. If you are undocumented, see below under “Additional Resources.”

Scholarship Application Process

  • Login to DePaul Scholarship Connect using your Campus Connect ID and password
  • Each year, starting on July 19, complete all questions on the General Application and the School of Continuing and Professional Studies application. For the latter, answer as many questions as you wish.
  • When you finish with your applications, be sure to click the Finish and Submit button. 
  • Monitor the progress of your application for all scholarships by clicking the Applications tab in the left corner of the page.

Scholarship Criteria

  • You must be registered at least half-time (four graduate credit hours; six undergraduate credit hours) during each quarter for which you are awarded a scholarship. Awards are not transferrable to another quarter.
  • Scholarships are awarded based on individual criteria, academic merit and financial need. 
  • Scholarship award offers are sent via email to your DePaul email address.
  • If you accept an award, it will appear in your Campus Connect account after the deadline to drop classes without tuition penalty for the quarter.
  • Unused scholarship awards cannot be used to pay off past balances or roll to future quarters and academic years.
