Featured scholarships are national scholarships that require review and/or endorsement by DePaul University. They are some of the most well-known and prestigious scholarship programs and include: Boren
, Carnegie, Fulbright, Marshall/ Mitchell, Rhodes
, and Truman
. Obtaining one of these scholarships can be a life changing opportunity.
To apply for these scholarships you typically have to be screened and nominated by DePaul . The nomination process involves a review of your application by a campus committee comprised of several DePaul professors. A nomination also usually requires an interview with the campus committee. After the interview, you generally have 1-2 weeks to revise your application before it is forwarded to the particular scholarship program's national selection committee, which is a group of professors selected from various universities across the country.
To allow time for review by the campus committee, most featured scholarships have two deadlines. A campus deadline typically falls about six weeks prior to the national deadline. During the interim period between the campus and national deadline, you should expect to spend a significant amount of time revising your application.
