Many students are looking for ways to lower the cost of higher education. Fortunately, there is a wide variety of scholarships available to DePaul students. These include
internal scholarships granted by DePaul and
LAS-specific scholarships, as well as external scholarship opportunities, which are often referred to as
national featured scholarships. Some programs cover tuition costs, others provide new opportunities like studying abroad or spending a summer working in Washington DC. Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student, you are likely eligible for multiple scholarship programs.

LAS scholarship page.
