​​​Each student at the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) has a different reason for wanting to enhance their life through academics. Whatever the motivation, SCPS has curated several scholarship opportunities to support their academic pursuits and we encourage our students to review the several opportunities we have available.

To be considered for an SCPS scholarship, students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the current academic year.

Additionally, If you are a student who is undocumented, the greater University has curated several scholarship and financial opportunities designed to support you. You can find more information about these opportunities, as seen below under “Additional Resources.”

Scholarship Application Process

  • Login to DePaul Scholarship Connect 
  • 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. You must do both each year, starting in mid-July.
  • Review your applications. Once complete, 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 transferable 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.
