Scholarship Requirements, Disbursement and Renewal

Scholarship winners must maintain a full time academic schedule while attending DePaul in order to keep their scholarship. The scholarship will be disbursed to the student’s financial account each quarter. The recipients will have the opportunity to reapply for the scholarship for a maximum of four years renewal. Renewal will be dependent upon maintaining a 3.0 university wide GPA and submission of a letter of recommendation from a faculty member by the start of Spring Quarter each academic year.

Recipients are required to send a progress report with their grades at the end of each quarter.

Support Network

The Center for Sales Leadership will provide access to a support network throughout the student’s academic career. The network will be focused on providing mentorship and guidance in financial aid, financial planning, academic and class assistance and identifying social groups. The Center will also work with the student to secure an on campus job during their freshman year.
