i. Once your application has been completed and submitted successfully,
it will be marked with a green checkmark.

automatically route to opportunities for which you qualify and more information
is needed. If you are recommended for additional scholarships, you will be
able to view a list of opportunities. Apply for them by clicking on the
blue “Apply” button beside each scholarship. Additional questions or
information may be required to complete the application process.
Submitting an Application
If awarded a scholarship, you will

of the scholarship application site under “active.” You must accept the award
within the DePaul Online Scholarship Application in order to receive the money.
You will also receive communication from financial aid stating that your
financial aid award letter has been updated. If you are not selected for a

indicating your application was reviewed and not selected. Individual emails
are not sent for those not selected.

in the winter quarter and is awarded money, the money will post to the student’s
spring quarter tuition bill. All awards are funneled through financial aid and
